We have compiled a few helpful tips that you might want to try if you are seeking to increase your sex drive and empower your relationship with your partner.

It's true that many couples gain weight after marriage but if your weight effects your ability to live a healthy life or your relationship with your partner, you might consider loosing a few pounds. Weight gain in a relationship can make a woman feel inadequate and self conscious about her bodies appearance. If you don't feel comfortable looking at yourself in the mirror then how can you feel sexy for your partner? Studies show that regular exercise can actually increase your libido!

If you go to bed with your mind filled with anger or are preoccupied about something, you are less likely to get "in the mood." Instead put your differences aside until the morning and allow your mind to feel sexual thoughts and feelings. Try giving each other a massage to start it off.

People are often unaware of the fact that certain medications like antidepressants and birth control pills can decrease your sex drive. If you've noticed a difference in your sex life after taking medications, talk to your physician to see if the two issues are related.

All of these things can certainly leave you feeling sleep deprived and exhausted. This stress can leave a relationship dull and sex-less. Instead, make time to clear your mind and steal a moment for your partner. It's crucial to find time for each other.
