Money doesn't buy marital happiness.
In the long run only time, effort and a willingness to work it out can do that.
However there are certain relationship products that can work as an aid to your time, effort and willingness.
They can't do it all for you, but they can be a useful tool to help you out.
1. A Couples Massage Course
Learning how to give each other a good massage is one of the best investments you can make in your relationship.
It covers two of the five languages - physical touch and quality time. You could even argue it covers off gift giving as well.
A massage is sensual and intimate and is a chance for the two of you to unwind from your day and spend time together.
2. A Vibrating Alarm Clock
Mismatched sleep schedules are a key cause of relationship problems. When one partner goes to bed late and the other likes to get up early, it causes disruptions which naturally have an effect on marital happiness.
The long term solution to this is discussion and compromise.
But one product that can make life slightly easier is a vibrating alarm clock.
Whichever one of you is the morning person can get up without disturbing the other.
