Once the honeymoon period ends, how do you keep the spark alive with the one you love?

On Tuesday's episode of "Katie," relationship expert and HuffPost Divorce blogger M. Gary Neuman shared his best advice on breakup-proofing your relationship.

One fix? Make date night a priority -- and make it a point not to talk about the kids, work or money.

"Everybody always looks at me and says, 'What the heck are we going to talk about then? That's all we ever talk about,'" Neuman says in the clip above. "But that's the point. When you were dating and falling in love, you weren't talking about the stress of money, work or kids or you never would have gotten together. It's not what got us here and it's not what's going to sustain us."
