Well, it definitely cuts both ways - both men and women can be like this. All relationships seem to have a high point in the beginning and then slowly settle down. A lot of times reality sets in - you have jobs, bills, the daily grind of life. As well, a lot of people don't seem to realize that a good marriage takes work from both, and one or the other often doesn't keep up that work. There are lots of posts from men on how their wife quit wearing make-up and nice clothes and dolling themselves up for the husbands, lots of posts from women on how their husbands no longer pursued them and just vegetated through the marriage.
If you are married, then checking out and not working at it should not be an option. It takes work from both people. It also helps to be realistic and understand that every marriage will have its ups and downs.
