  • Your children move out of the house.

    Just as having children changes the dynamic of your marriage, when those kids finally leave home, your relationship will continue to evolve. "Unless you've been nurturing your marriage all along, you may find you need to get to know each other all over again," says Litzinger.

    Don't assume you know your spouse as well as you did on your wedding day. People change, and what you enjoy individually and as a couple may be different now. "Talk to each other about what you like to do, and what you want to find time for separately, as well as together," says Litzinger. Then make plans together, preferably a mix of couple-focused activities and separate pursuits that feed your individual interests. "When you make time to find out what you like—together and apart—you may find you reconnect and rediscover why you got together in the first place," she says.
