Romance your husband to improve your relationship for the long term to keep it fresh and vibrant for longevity as well as making you both happier and more fulfilled. When you romance your husband you give him permission to return the favor for an improvement you will both cherish and maintain the happy couple you were when you first married.
What do you think of when you hear the term “romance”? Is it a bit old fashioned or out of date? Well the truth remains that romance is an essential part of your married life and should only be ignored at your own peril. At your peril simply means divorce, estrangement, unhappiness of either yourself or your husband or both. Romance will not cure all that ails a relationship but it can go a long way towards bringing a man and a woman together and softening the complexities of modern day life. If that sounds Pollyannaish then so be it. On the other hand consider what romance really means. Walking together holding hands is one bit of romance that is not really overly outlandish but yet it does more than cause a husband and wife to touch each other. Or is it? Why do many women go out of their way to hold hands in the mall, on a walk or simply when they are together? Because it is a simple, real method of connecting with another person.
Connection is a funny word, or is it? Connecting with a person might mean getting a phone call and that means you made a connection over the phone lines. Calling your mother and speaking to her may mean making a connection. Is that an important or not an important method of human existence? Are we not meant to connect on some level? The answer must surely be yes!
Growing up, romances were considered the worse books to read in my house. At least certain romances were. Chick lit and high school romances were acceptable to read on occasion and classics were always fine. But traditional romances with a man and a woman embracing on the cover? Those were trashy, poorly written, and only worth reading for the sex scenes which probably made up at least half of the book’s contents.
After a certain age, I was allowed to read whatever book I wanted to, but romances were still looked down upon as the least valuable genre. However, by the time I hit middle school, romance novels were just too tempting.Since they’re available at every place ever that sells secondhand books, it wasn’t hard for me to find romances and form my own opinions about romances. And it wasn’t long before I really liked them, so much that I started my own blog to review just them. And millions of other readers love them just as much.
There are a lot of stereotypes involving avid romance readers, like desperate spinsters, lonely women, and curious teenage girls. But the truth is, the majority of romance readers are college educated women who are married and have fulfilling lives. So even though there is a level of escapism, there’s a lot more to the appeal of romance than that.Many women, I included, like it for the positive messages in the books. The heroine almost always has insecurities about her body or her wits or personality and yet the hero is still completely enraptured by her. For instance, in Lord Braybrooke’s Penniless Bride by Elizabeth Rolls, Christina Daventry is incredibly insecure about her financial means, looks, and heritage. As the bastard daughter of a nobleman, she is only one wrong move away from being on the streets.
