Are things in your marriage getting stale and boring. If you are not careful that can be the beginning of the end. Here are some ways to regain that spark.

You are not alone if you are in a marriage that leaves you craving more fun and excitement. I think it's just one of those things that happens after falling into a routine over the years.

But, the more important question is, "what can I do about it?"

Author Gregory J.P. Godek wrote a book called "1001 Ways To Be Romantic." So, if you are stuck in a boring marriage, check out some ways for putting spice and spark back into your marriage.
