Rather than trying to figure out all the different components of how to make love last, focus instead on creating an atmosphere of respect with your partner. The more you can do this, the more other vital elements of the relationship, like trust, intimacy, passion, love, and so on, will naturally flourish.

If you're not saying aloud (or at least to yourself) "I love you" to your mate in six months or less, hit the "next" button. Have the courage to believe that something better is out there.

But there are a few important lessons I've learned (mostly the hard way) that have truly helped save my marriage countless times.
