What do you need to “winterize”?
“Winterizing is basically adapting or preparing something for use in the winter…
The idea is that you know a new season is coming, and you’re taking proactive measures to avoid ending up in a less-than-ideal situation, such as coming out to a dead car battery in a snowstorm or paying a sky-high gas bill because the heat is literally going right out the window.
Does your relationship need winterizing? Perhaps your “winter” is a new addition to the family, or a new career, or your kids entering a busier, more demanding stage of life. How can you take stock of your relationship and prepare it for what’s to come?”

I think these are good questions presented in the article, for a couple to go through…. but both also have to see the issue and actually make it a priority to do all they can.
I know we have a history of seeing it coming, giving the warning, one of us stressing we need to do things to keep us connected, and the other bulldozing in with no prep (other than the warning to expect it) or plan to stay connected in the marriage. And paying a major price because of it, that has continuous lingering effects.
When I first read the title, I thought, ‘oh good. Maybe someone will have ideas on a fast, easy way to warm up the lube!’
Anyways, thats a nice list and would make for some good discussion. Although I did look over it, nothing really stood out to me, right now.
