Lighting the flame again

Posted: Updated:

Have you just waved goodbye to your last child? If so, be warned; when you look around that seemingly-desolate house, your husband is still around somewhere! Whether you're just embarking on the empty-nest journey or you've been struggling to settle in, it's time to shift attention to your marriage and foster a stronger bond with your spouse. Re-ignite romance, reestablish intimacy and realize that this time is all about you two.

Go on a Marriage Retreat

It's a new phase of your marriage, and you shouldn't expect to instantly know how to live together post-children. It's OK to enlist help. "Go on a marriage retreat," says intimacy expert and psychotherapist Mary Jo Rapini. "When the kids are gone, marriage dynamics can fail. You need to rebuild."

Try WinShape Retreat, Gottman Retreats or Marriage Boot Camp.
