Via Essence 8 Ways to Spice Up a Boring Relationship by Paul C. Brunson.

What is the number one reason couples break up? Good question. The answer is debatable, for sure. Typically the most popular reasons often include infidelity, poor communication, or financial disagreements. In every study I’ve read, one of these culprits always holds the top spot. That said, I’d like to nominate another reason  –one that rarely tops the list but can be to blame. It’s one of the most dangerous things that can happen to a relationship. Boredom! Boredom is a threat to your relationship because it’s often the root of other issues.

If you recognize that your relationship could use a boost, what do you do? Here are eight ways to spice up a boring relationship and keep it hot in 2012!
