Do you find yourself wondering, "What happened to us?!?!" At some point, we all do. We long for those days when we were dating and first married. We were full of passion for each other and so in love. Our lovemaking was frequent and passionate. It seemed we couldn't get enough of each other. How did we get to a place where we were rubbing together like sandpaper, each doing our own thing?

Ken: If this sounds familiar, we want to encourage you. This is a common part of the journey. Our relationship is not just about emotions. It's not just about sex. It's not just about having things in common. At our core, what we want and need is to feel loved and respected. We want to know the one we're committed to is committed to us.
Ken: A wise friend once told us....'Your lovemaking is a good barometer of how your relationship is doing.' When I decided to make our relationship a priority, our passion started to return. If your passion in the bedroom is lack-luster, chances are pretty good that you need to pay more attention to the rest of your relationship.
Janine: If you miss the one you married, take a closer look - they're still there. Your relationship is still there....it may just need to be nourished and loved back to life.
