Remember when you first got married? Everything was new and exciting, and your relationship was full of fun and connection. Conversations just clicked and flowed naturally. Somewhere along the way, life happened and the new became not so new, and the exciting became less exciting. Before you knew it, you felt like you had a boring marriage.
