If you have been in a relationship for a while at some point your relationship can become stale, meaning the same thing occurs day in and day out over and over again.

For some couples the routine is set and there are no deviations. They get up and get the children ready for school, they get ready for work and sit in traffic, they each go to a job they really don't like, they come home and have dinner and the routine starts all over again the next day. With this is going on there is no time to spend with each other because life is all about the routine. Once this occurs some people consider this to be a relationship where the end is right around the corner if something is not done to change this.

What can couples do to try to get their relationship back on track?

First getting back on track takes two. If both parties are not willing participants you might want to reevaluate your relationship. On the other hand if both parties are willing to do the work you are already off to a good start.

The first thing couples can do is sit down and talk honestly about how they feel. Listening to each others concerns can really make a difference when it comes to getting a relationship back on track.

The next thing they can do is take the concerns to heart and consciously make the effort towards change. They must both understand that the change will not occur overnight and they have to patient. As the changes slowly starts to occur acknowledging each others growth is important. Never let ones efforts go unrecognized.

Last but not least say, "Thank You."

Once you listen to a persons concerns, acknowledge their needs and make a conscious and ongoing effort to change to better your relationship this is the start to the possibilities of great things to come for you and your significant other.
