In our Newsletter we discussed the importance of some level of spontaneity in the marriage in order to keep the marriage from becoming dull. It's natural for some routine to take place, especially after a few years of marriage; however, spouses should not become so "comfortable" with their lifestyle that they give up spontaneity altogether.
Many marriages are destroyed because the couple became so absorbed and comfortable with their routine lifestyle, that they simply stopped trying to have fun or do new things with each other. It's possible that when one or both spouses realize that this happened to their marriage, they may feel that they are too disconnected from each other to even try to make it work.
This is a real threat affecting many marriages today, and spouses should continue to keep the relationship alive and fresh by constantly looking for a few new things or variations every once in a while.
