My almost-wife and I have had a whirlwind, stressful, emotionally draining life together from almost the very beginning - not due to each other, but due to outside forces like relocating across the country, unemployment, opposite work schedules, being away from family and friends, worry about money, etc, etc. Oh, not to mention planning our wedding.
The good news is we've gone through all this together and have a really solid foundation. We make excellent partners to each other and have our routines, communication, etc. down. But we've never really had a chance to just have fun together!
Most of the big things will be over in the next six months to a year, and we want to start pulling together resources/ideas to make sure that once we have the money and time, we start developing our spontaneity, romance, passion, intimacy and just fun. We want to make sure that in ten years we haven't turned into just "really excellent roommates." Basically we want to know how to develop a habit of "being in love."
Any book, blog, article, website recommendations? Personal examples or ideas?
