Last night, we had our weekly Twitter party, #MarriageChat. The topic was “making my marriage stronger” and tweeters sounded off, letting us know what they do in their marriage to strengthen the marital bond. We got some great participation from veterans as well as newbies. We invite you to join us Wednesday evenings, 9pm-10pm EST. If you missed last night’s chat, here’s a recap of the conversation:

    I made it! That’s nice. I love marriage chat. I sometimes forget because I’m on the Central Standard time, and it’s usually at dinner time for me.

Having Problems? Give Your Marriage A S.E.C (Sex, Excitement and Communication)

Every Wednesday night I participate in the best free counseling on the planet ““ better known as Black and Married With Kids’ Marriage Chat Twitter party (#marriagechat). Last night’s topic was improving your marriage ““ one of my favorites. My husband and I are always up for learning how to love each other better and stay committed to our marriage.

When the group was asked how we strengthen our marriage, I lifted my eyes from my laptop and asked my dear hubby what exactly it is we do to “boost our connection” during a rough patch. We both responded at the same time, “Communicate!” Then he goes, “We have more sex!” just as I was saying, “We up the excitement factor.” We both had huge smiles on our faces, just thinking about how much of a difference those things make. There it was. We’d identified our formula for reviving those dead spells in our marriage. So, I say to you, if times are tough, give your marriage a S.E.C.! Here’s how:

Sex Things Up A Bit

Let’s be honest, sex plays a large role in any marriage. You should be having as much of it as you can squeeze in and when it’s good, usually big smiles and happy thoughts follow. Now I’m not saying great sex will cure your problems, but a lack thereof can cause a little “tension” in your marriage. Hit the sack, together, and get back to the loving. Need inspiration? Play those songs that always “take you there”, act out a shared fantasy, or maybe start the night off with his and her massages. Whatever works for you ““ just do it! (Pun intended!)

To get the other two tips, head over to Man, Wife and Dog blog to learn about bringing the excitement and amping up the communication!
