Maintaining sexual connection is of great importance to the partnership and for family life. Passion is aroused through mutual work on connection above the ego. After the natural attraction becomes routine and boring, partners need to work together on their minds in order to renew their desire. Partners can then get closer by conceding to one another lovingly above hatred, by exemplifying self-restraint when friction arises, and by demonstrating appreciation and complimenting each other. By doing so, couples fulfill each other, creating loyalty and connection.
