Jennie Finch Shares how to Fire up the Romance Despite the Demands of the Holidays
Date:12/2/2008

WAYNE, N.J., Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- With the bright lights, sweet treats and beautifully wrapped gifts, the winter holidays may be an exciting time of year for any child, but the same can't always be said for adults,especially with today's tough economy. Whether it's standing in painfully long shopping lines, emptying their wallets, or spending hours traveling to the in-laws, many couples find little time to relax, and even less time to be alone and romantic with their spouse.

"It's been a crazy year with my practice and competition schedule, and then you add to that my husband's baseball practice and playing schedule and our active two-year-old. Every year we end up running around more than we relax, which leaves very little time for romance. My husband and I always look forward to the holidays as a time to reconnect with family, and most importantly with each other," said USA softball player and world champion Jennie Finch. "Even though our schedules as athletes may not be typical, trying to balance work and life - especially around the holidays - is something we share with most couples."

According to results from a recent survey of couples, 90 percent noted that they would like to be more intimate with their partner. Eight out of 10 couples feel so overwhelmed that they report feeling that intimacy has become more of a "to do" than a "to desire."

So what can couples do to keep the romance alive despite the roller-coaster schedule of holiday parties and family gatherings?

Experts say there are several things you can do to keep the romance alive - even during the holidays:

  • Exchange Fewer Gifts: Given today's tough economy, make an agreement with your spouse to exchange fewer presents. Not only will this help you save money, but you may also find it leaves you with a little more time for romance.
