Respect is the basic tenet that can keep your relationship going and help romance alive.

#4 Stick to a sleep routineMy City Woman's tips to keep romance alive in marriage after kids

It is imperative that kids have a stipulated bedtime. If they sleep on time, you can get more time with your partner. Easier said! But seriously, limit their nap time during the day and have them get up at regular time in the morning. Once you work around their sleep time, you too would find that much needed rest and more “us time”.

#5 Spend time with each other

Kids are playing around and constantly chatting up with you, conversations with your partner is often “broken”, sentences are dropped midway and thoughts too get foggy, do stay close to your spouse midst all of this. Be in touch! Sit next to each other. Look into each other’s eyes when you talk. Hug in the morning, say goodnight and steal that kiss if you have to. If you practice it, you will be able to master it.

#6 Watch your conversations

When talking to your partner ensure that your conversations are about you and him. Avoid talks on potty, vomiting, sleeping etc. You want to keep it light, nice and romantic, right?
