With Valentine's Day right around the corner, Caring.com is working with the "marriage doctors" to offer helpful tips on how to infuse a little nurturing and romance back into a relationship.

"Our study of successfully married couples over more than two decades reveals that caring for aging parents is yet another challenge they are capable of dealing with, because the strength of their relationship carries them through the good times and the bad," said Dr. Charles Schmitz.
