Don't Get Stuck In A Rut Change it up! Sex can get boring very quickly when the routine (& the room) is the same each time. If you have sex mainly at night, try having sex in the morning a few times. Feel uncomfortable because the kids are in the next room? Try to have sex before they get home from school. Is it always in the bedroom? Find a different room in the house.
Make time for sex
One of the biggest complaints between couples is how sex isn't made a priority. Sex is one of the biggest pieces of the marriage puzzle, along with finances, children, communication, etc. If you find yourself getting too tired to have sex, then have sex before you get too tired.
Are there too many things to do before you're able to have sex? Then ask for help. Try approaching your spouse and say, "I have x, y, and z to do, but if I get help with these 3 things, then that will free me up for us to have some time together".
You have to make time for sex, just as you make time for everything else in your day. If you don't, your relationship can start to suffer.
