Nothing puts the sizzle back into a marriage or brings back the spark than changing your environment.
According to a study by Lava life, the large majority of married couples who were surveyed claim to have had better sex with their spouses in hotel rooms and other places outside of the home than they ever have had in their regular bedrooms.
And it’s no surprise. Whether you consider yourself traditional, conservative or wild, changing your setting from its usual environment will instantly turn up the heat on any marriage relationship. It unleashed the carefree side of ourselves, and allows for fantasy to take control.
For romantic getaways on Valentine’s Day, make sure that you plan ahead. Depending on how far you want to travel, whether it’s your local hotel or a getaway outside of town, you will want to make sure of availability and book your getaway as early on as possible.
While Valentine’s Day is primarily for couples, many towns have Valentine’s Day events that will bring people into the city, so make sure that you make reservations early on.
Your getaway can be as simple or as detailed as you make it.
From a simple weekend getaway to the country with a quiet dinner, walk on the beach or tour of the surroundings, to a single night away from home where you are given the privacy and quietness that perhaps lacks at home (especially for us parents out there), you can plan out an affordable and memorable getaway adventure that it tailored towards your husband.
Nothing beats a surprise adventure, and so you should try to plan and book it without your husband knowing.
Then, moments before you are ready to whisk him away, tell him to pack a bag (or better yet, pack it for him if you can), and then head out for your private excursion.
There is much to be said about having an entire day alone together especially if heavy work schedules, kids or family life usually causes day to day distraction.
Hotels make for easy getaways as you’ll be surrounded by restaurants, can order room service, rent a romantic movie for a quiet night in, or book your weekend at a hotel that provides live entertainment.
You could also consider booking in at a lodge or resort where you’ll be able to have fun dancing and socializing while retreating back to your room for some alone time.
This private retreat will do wonders for your marriage, whether you’ve just recently gotten married or have been married for years.
Make sure to place do not disturb signs on your door and call down to the front desk and request a late checkout!
