Reconnect with Your Spouse A relationship is difficult to maintain. Over time, couples realize the romance and love that was once in their relationship can no longer be felt or recognized. Couples lose love and romance within their relationship for a variety of reasons, but the primary reasons are due to lack of communication and time. Couples are working hard to provide for their family, and it does not leave spare time to maintain a connection that was once there. In order for spouses to reconnect, time must be set aside for them to become reacquainted with one another. Reconnecting is not an event that will take place overnight, but it is not impossible.
