    Spark- what's that?

    Maybe it's hiding down the side of the sofa??

    Oh my god, I just realised that DH and I might be in trouble.

    I always thought it was normal for the spark to die. Obviously not!

    I don't get butterflies, don't miss him when he's at work/away, couldn't really care either way.

    He seems to feel the same way about me.

    I love him, and he's a great hubby and dad. I'm not in love with him though!

    After 7 years together our spark is very dim. Our sex life has been shocking for 18 months now. We only made an effort when we were TTC.

    It's something that worries me every single day. I keep wondering...is this it? Will I never feel that excitement again...the kind you feel in a new relationship.

    Sigh.

    I think spark comes in ebbs and flows; well, it has in our 15 yr relationship. Stress can definitely be a factor and was during our ttc journey. After a few years it was getting really hard to feel spark. Becoming pregnant and going through miscarriage brought us closer again though. I think the key for us has been accepting that long-term relationships are hard and need to be nurtured...and it's normal to have less than wonderful times, but to take this as a sign that we need to work harder. Communicating openly about this has been helpful.
