    Just wait. Eventually you’ll end up in separate bedrooms.

    re: susan newman

    Yep. People tend to get lazy and then wonder where the fire went.
    Or they let everything else become more important than their relationship, then wonder why they end up in divorce court.

    I used to work with a girl that wore full makeup and sexy nighties to bed every night, and her husband never saw her without her makeup. It was a shock to her when 3 years into her marriage he left for a lady with a more realistic lifestyle. HE is still married and happy, SHE is single, again. Been over 20 years too.

    I suppose that couples learn, and get used to some kind of routine – using the bathroom, whether together, apart, or even separate bathrooms. Same bed, different beds, different rooms, however, and whatever works.
    (I’ve never married, so no; I wouldn’t know.)

    My husband never liked for me to wear long gowns or PJs to bed even when it was cold. I would put on socks and snuggle up under him until I was warm enough. I would wear cute nighties for him. As far as make up goes, he never cared much for it. He said I was pretty enough without. I would put on a little just to satisfy MY ego. Even when he snored and I thought of sleeping in another room, that was a no no. I just put in ear plugs. We had 33 years of love and respect. Wish I could hear him snoring again.

    I figure the magic is over the first time the bathroom door is left open on purpose. It’s different for everyone, there is no formula. It is simply a matter of trade out.

    My wife and I have both been married and divorced before meeting. We both know what there is to lose and work at keeping the bond. No, it’s not perfect, but it works for us. Never in the bathroom at the same time but only one bed in the house for us.

    On the other hand, if it took her this long to notice, maybe there’s still hope.

    I feel for you, bawana. I’m only 52, but the downhill process already seems to have started for me! :(

    I know what you mean. I’m 44 and I had some trouble moving around for about 3 days after working all day in my yard last Monday. Every muscle in my body seemed to ache and it took quite a while for things to get back to normal again. Unfortunately, that was just the beginning of yet another summer of those constant aches and pains for me because of all the yard work there is to do. I’m SO getting too old for this kind of stuff!!!!! :-(
