There are many things that a couple can do to keep the fire of love burning. I encourage you to choose a couple of ideas from the list below and put some new ones into use each week.

This list appeared on Facebook and the author is unknown. To make this list a little more interesting, I have added an occasional link that opens in another browser window. Each link will lead to another article on the topic on the list. Some links have more than one article, so be sure to scroll down. Enjoy! If you do, “SHARE” this list with your friends.
