… Forgiveness. It is difficult to heat up a relationship when either person has been hurt and no forgiveness has taken place. This is also not an overnight or easy process, but it is achievable. It may take seeking marriage therapy to work through the forgiveness. The issue in need of forgiveness might not be something as big as infidelity, instead it could be something like “I keep having to remind you to take out the trash on Tuesdays”. As we discussed earlier, forgiveness is not easy and many of us don’t realize how to forgive others. The great thing is that we have the internet. There are all kinds of books, podcasts, YouTube videos, webinars, etc. on how to forgive. This is required if two people want to reignite their fire.

When people first get married, they are usually deeply in love and extremely excited to be together. But sometimes, over time, that passion and excitement begins to fade. This has been particularly true after the pandemic, when many marriages went through great upheavals. What can a couple do to rekindle the love and excitement that they used to have when they were first together?

In this interview series, called “Falling In Love Again With Your Spouse; 5 Things You Need To Rekindle Love In A Marriage That Has Gone Cold,” we are talking to relationship professionals, therapists, psychologists, and coaches to share stories and insights from their experience.

As a part of this series, I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Azia Tisdale.
