We talk about doing things to help keep the spark alive, but it is mostly talk. I think it is because the spark hasn’t ever died for him. I can be mean and rude and unappreciative, but it doesn’t matter, he still loves me the same. I guess I am lucky in that sense, and unlucky at the same time. When I need extra effort or a little romance he doesn’t understand since it's not something that he needs.
What do you do to maintain (and put the spark in!) your marriage or relationship as you juggle work and taking care of kids and other responsibilities?
I think that this is something that I struggle with.
When I get under a lot of stress, instead of going to my husband for support I tend to shut him out. And knowing that I do this does not give me the ability to change it. I juggle work, marriage, school, and kids. When it gets to be mid-term or finals time, I get really frustrated with my husband; it is almost like I resent him for bothering me with his problems at that time. When it is over, I appologize and we are okay until the next one.
