In challenging economic times, divorce rates tend to fall. Divorce can be an expensive proposition, and it's true that two can live less expensively than one, which may lead couples to stay together - unhappy.

In stressful times, although divorce rates may go down, that doesn't mean married couples are happier.

If you're struggling in your marriage right now, perhaps due to outside factors such as job loss or credit card debt, or because of personality conflicts or other reasons, some basic Feng Shui principles may be able to help.

Are you doing pretty well in most areas of your life, but still struggle with your romantic relationship? This time of year can be especially hard if you're in an unhappy relationship. But there's hope.

You can't change other people. (Don't you often wish you could?) How many times do people say, “Things would be so much better if only he (or she) would change”? It's usually futile and frustrating to try to change anyone else, but you can create powerful changes in your life when it begins inside of you.

Cook Dinner At Home for a Romantic Valentine's Day

Are you looking for a unique idea for a Valentine's Day date? Why not skip the crowded restaurant scene and have a nice, romantic dinner at home? Using your stove is good Feng Shui, as it gets the energy flowing in that area of your home and reflects your income opportunities, fame and reputation. So, if you want to be popular with the opposite sex, you really can win someone's heart with a home-cooked meal.

Make Food Prep Easy and Stress-Free

To set the stage for your romantic dinner, plan something easy. You don't want stress over food prep to ruin your mood before the night even begins. Whether it's lobster, stir fry or a pasta dish (make sure to keep it light so you're not too stuffed for after-dinner festivities), create a plan for cooking that will keep it simple.

Select Colorful Foods

Bright, colorful foods are healthy and look more appealing on the plate. Don't weigh things down in heavy sauces, and pick a variety of fresh vegetables of different colors for a meal that's as attractive as your date. Finish off with fresh strawberries dipped in dark chocolate for a sensual, sense-tingling dessert. Check out this article for more tips about Feng Shui foods.

Set the Right Feng Shui Mood from Start to Finish

Set the table with classy black and white linens with splashes of red for color (and passion). Consider placing red roses on the table, but keep them cut short so they don't obstruct your view of each other. You can dine by unscented candlelight for a truly romantic mood.

Feng Shui To Find Your True Love

Ready to Find True Love
Arthur Ashe, professional tennis player, once said:  “You’ve got to get to the stage in life where going for it is more important than winning or losing.” This can apply far beyond sports, to nearly any aspect of life.

If you are single and looking for romance, ask yourself: “Am I really 'going for it?' Am I taking chances without concern about the end result?”

It's easy to take a chance if you have nothing to lose, if the stakes aren't all that high to begin with. For instance, you might find it easy to go on a blind date, because if the person doesn't like you (or you don't like that person), you haven't lost anything other than one night and a few bucks.

However, it could be harder to approach a stranger at a party who you've already decided you like. If that person rejects you, you might spend the rest of the night feeling down or bad about yourself. It could even affect future dates by hurting your self-confidence. The stakes are higher.

Use Feng Shui to Boost Your Confidence and Take a Chance

The secret is to get to the point where winning or losing doesn't matter in anything you do. You can use Feng Shui to boost your confidence level so that whatever people think of you, it doesn't change your opinion of yourself. At this point, you'll take more chances. You won't hesitate to “go for it.” With this new attitude, you'll put yourself in more positions to find true love -- and truly “wow” people as you do.

Most people have far more regrets about “the one that got away,” or about things they wish they had done but never did, than about things they've tried and, perhaps, failed. If even a great athlete can say that it's not about winning or losing, you know it's true. To put a twist on an old expression: It's not whether you win or lose, it's that you played the game.

Feng Shui Love Tips: How To Attract True Love and New Opportunities

Open Space to Attract True Love and Opportunities
It's one of the dangers of living in New York City, or anywhere that space is tight. People feel compelled to fill every empty spot with... something. Storage solutions. Furniture. Stuff.

Certainly, you can decorate in a way that makes the most of your space, including creating additional storage where it is needed and flexible seating arrangements to make guests to your home or apartment comfortable, too.

But true beauty and elegance is often found in the empty spaces of a home or apartment. If the energy in your home or apartment doesn't feel just right, it might not be that you need to add more furniture, carpeting, artwork, knick-knacks or even Feng Shui cures. Sometimes, you'll create elegance by taking things away instead of adding to the clutter and the energy around you.

Energy All Around Us

Every item we own or come into contact with has its own energy. When we add more “things” to our space, we are co-mingling that energy with our own. Before adding something to your space, make sure its energy will be a positive addition.

- Do you love it?
- Is it useful?
- Does it have a purpose (even if that purpose is just to bring you joy)?

Make Room for Your Own Energy

Just because there's an empty space -- perhaps a corner in your living room, or a blank wall in the kitchen -- it doesn't mean you have to fill it. The more open, empty space we have, the more chi can circulate through our home, carrying opportunities, good health, and happiness.We can permit our own energy to permeate our home, making it truly “ours,” a vehicle we can use on our journey to discover our true-self and begin to live the life of our dreams.

Find True Love by Breaking Old Patterns

Find True Love by Breaking Old Patterns
Are you holding yourself back from finding true love without even realizing it? Do you follow the same patterns, day after day, expecting different results? It was Albert Einstein who first pointed out that doing the same thing repeatedly while expecting a different result is the definition of insanity, but it's been repeated many times.

The expression applies to anything in life, whether you're talking about business, relationships or dating. But what about when you don't recognize the patterns, when you're so ingrained in your habits that you don't even realize you're doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome? Applying Feng Shui in our homes and apartments gives us an advantage when it comes to recognizing and changing the patterns that don't work in our lives.

Looking at Old Space and Old Habits with New Eyes

Do you know that feeling you get when you re-arrange your home, or add a new item, such as furniture, a throw rug or window treatments? Small and subtle changes -- sometimes as small as placing fresh flowers in a vase on your kitchen table -- can feel like a breath of fresh air. It can make our place feel like a whole new home.

When we shake up our surroundings in this way, it can help us break old patterns, but first we have to recognize those patterns. Taking a close look at the marraige and romance corner -- the back right corner of your home when you view it from the front door looking in -- may reveal some of your patterns or views on love and romance.

As you assess the space and your patterns, think about these questions:

- Do you wait for others to always take the initiative when it comes to romance?
- Do you come on too strong when you meet someone you like?
- Do you take time to listen to your date during that first conversation?
- Are you too quiet on first dates; do you listen as the other person reveals anything while failing to reveal anything about yourself?

Now Make a Shift

Whatever your pattern, consider doing the exact opposite next time you go out. If you don't usually approach attractive strangers, push out of your comfort zone and do it, wherever you might be. If you're more of a listener, try talking. If you dominate conversations, stand back and listen for a while.

Pushing out of your comfort zone will reveal important insight about yourself on your journey to find true love.
