1. Hold hands often.
Couples who hold hands often are proven to be happier than those who do not. One of our favorite things to do is hold hands in the car and listen to music.
2. Ask each other on dates.
Dates play an important part in showing someone you care. Dating your spouse let’s them know that you are still interested in them. We try and go on a date at least once a month.
3. Give shoulder rubs for no reason.
Does this one really need an explanation?
Think about what your grandparents always said “Treat others the way you want to be treated.
4. Do each other’s chores.
Chores are great when someone else does them for you right? This means when your husband does one of your chores never tell them they are not doing it right! Just appreciate they care enough to do it for you.
5. Ask your partner how their day was.
Be a listening ear and take interest if your partner had a great day or a bad day. This is the way you show each other that you are there for them no matter what.
6.Give little gifts.
Gifts make anyone feel good. It could be an expensive gift or something as simple as a note, a kind gesture let’s you know your partner was thinking of you and wanted to make your day.
7. Kiss and hug (not just when you are coming and going).
It’s SO important to show each other affection.
8. Flirt with each other.
It may seem silly, but it isn’t. Everyone likes to be wanted especially by their significant other. Make each other laugh and make each other smile it’s worth it.
9. Always say Thank you.
When anyone does something for you the right thing to do is say thank you. In relationships this phrase sometimes gets forgotten. The lady at Starbucks hands you coffee and you say “thank you” so if your spouse does something that helps you they deserve the same.
10. Talk about your future together.
If you aren’t doing this, start.
