pitty petty

i don't think it's over until both agree it's over. The little things can make or break a relationship but don't get stuck on the period.

Honeymoon

I don't know when it is over. My wife and myself have only been married for 29 years.

Keep the sizzle and not the fizzle

We've been married almost 31 years and there is still the fizzle. We have date nights, we hold hands, always say, "I love you" several times a day and the sex just gets better. We do little things for each other, etc. Is you feel it's fizzling, do something to put the sizzle back into the marriage. :)
