You've tamed the laundry, hit a home run at work and dished up a family dinner. Forget anything? Oh, right -- your partner!

It's easy to simply co-exist with the person next to you in bed. But a rise in "gray" divorce (couples over 50 calling it quits) suggests that neglecting your relationship is a bad idea.

Isn't it time to add a little love to your to-do list? Try these 25 ideas.

Climbing out of a dating rut can be difficult. But couples who participate in exciting activities get a big boost in relationship satisfaction, according to a study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. So grab your significant other and get ready for a good -- but different -- time.

Laugh it up. Crack up at a comedy club with your sweetie.

Get comfy in the kitchen. Take a cooking class (bonus points for learning a foreign cuisine).

Hit the road. Rent a fun car -- a Prius, a Volkswagen Beetle, a Smart Car, a Mustang -- and go for a mini-road trip.
