Does anyone else need a break??

I am so irritated by him it is getting really bad. How do I go about rekindiling that spark? We are getting married in 9 months and I feel like the thrill is already gone. This is SO NOT good. I know relationships are a lot of work, but our lives consist of work, saving money, kids (ages 9 and 2) and catching up on housework over the weekends.
I don't know what do do or how to get that lovin' feelin back. Somebody help!

We went through a really hard time the year we were engaged but I think ultimately the break really benefited us a lot. I'm not going to lie, things still aren't perfect, but they did improve a lot. We still need to work everyday on our relationship.
It was nice to take a step back from our relationship so I could focus on myself and not worry about "us."
Now our break involved us seeing other people, but I know that's not the kind of break that's beneficial for everyone.
It does suck to get stuck in a rut. I know you are getting married soon... but maybe a nice spa weekend away would help you? Or a mini-getaway with some friends?

I had a mini breakdown when his parents were in town. I felt so out of touch with him and was just angry.
Can you do a date night or weekend? Have you talked to him about your feelings?
Think about all the good times, go through pics and remember why you fell in love with him.
Good luck, but know you are not alone!

I take mini-breaks about once a month. We have a girls bunco club that usually turns into a slumber party because of too much wine. My MOH and I take a weekend trip every year, just the two of us.
Last summer we got into a huge fight, too much stress from life in general, and I moved into my mom's house for a week. Since then we both have been better about communicating and making time for each other.
I've been getting "itchy" lately and FI is kinda making me nuts--he just doesn't get why the wedding is so important to me. His family has been less than supportive and he keeps telling me to pick up the slack! Talk about feelings of resentment. My bachelorette party is this weekend and could not have come at a better time! If you're in Chicago, stop on by!
