For a happy marriage, say 5 positive things for every negative one, and find new ways to experience desire

The New York Times posted a blog recently that examined the ingredients for a happy marriage. As anyone married longer than 6 months can tell you, sustaining a happy marriage is not as simple as it may seem. Ask yourself, “What can I do in 5 minutes today to make my partner’s life better?” For more suggestions, see the New York Times post on “That Loving Feeling”.  Meanwhile, in a recent “TED Talk,” world-renowned sex therapist Esther Perel of Belgium talks about the nearly universal experience of couples who find they have less  interest in sex after years of marriage.  “How can we keep wanting what we already have?” she queries, and answers in an inspiring talk, “The Secret to Desire in a Long Term Relationship.”
