There was probably a time—perhaps in the not-so-distant-past—when you couldn’t imagine using ‘bedroom’ and ‘boring’ in the same sentence when it came to sex with your partner.
In the early, pre-baby phase of your relationship, your sex life was hot, heavy, passionate, and you expected it to be that way forever. In fact, you said “I do” to forever with the expectation that you would stay lovers for life.

Unfortunately, an unsatisfied sex life is one of the leading causes of divorce. And yet the truth is that sex in most relationships will get boring in the long run if you let it.
