If you are going through some tough times and you no longer know whether you and your partner still have the hearts for each other, try going to a romantic dinner, followed by a great intercourse. You will see that the spark of love will surely be there again and you will start enjoying yourselves more.
Think about the Repercussions
Okay, so you have started being the younger versions of yourselves again and you are very active from a sexual point of view. You need to think about the repercussions of your actions. You probably have big kids right now, who went off to college or even got married and flew away from the nest. This means that you have the house all for yourselves. You have a lot of free time and now, you can enjoy each other more and this means you need to think about … well, undesired pregnancies.
Believe it or not, you can still get pregnant, as long as you have not hit your menopause yet. Therefore, you need to protect yourself as much as you can. Be it through condoms, pills or IUDs, you have to make sure you do not risk anything. Becoming parents again, at this age, can be quite a troubled thought and that is because you are getting older and the prospects of taking care of a baby again are not that bright.
