Andrew and I have been married for 3.5 years. I would in no way shape or form call myself a marriage expert on any day. But something I do think I am good at is showing my husband that I love him. Today I am sharing 6 ways to show your spouse love.
6 Ways To Show Your Spouse Love
Leave Notes: Andrew started this for me early on and I picked up on it. We surprise each other with little post it notes on our mirrors, in shoes, laptops, on top of a container in the fridge etc. It’s a quick simple thing that takes hardly any time but really shows someone how much you care.
Ask them what you can help them with: My love language is affection, but Andrew’s is acts of service. Asking your spouse how you can help them really shows that you are paying attention.
Take an interest in their interests: Andrew and I have very different interests but we really try to take an interest in each others interests. Even if it’s listening to a podcast that they love with them, watching a show they like (even though you don’t). Even asking them about something they’ve been talking a lot about.
Plan special things for them: It doesn’t need to be expensive or extravagant, but if your spouse loves fishing, plan a day to go fishing. Do they love wine? Find a local winery and spend a day there.
Take something off their plate: Are they stressed at work and at home? Do something they normally do at home. For example unload the dishwasher, take the trashcans to the curb, pay the bills, etc.
Show affection: This is the easiest, cheapest, and best thing you can do. Show your spouse affection. These days it’s really easy to get caught up on our phones, computers, and watching Netflix or DVR shows. Stop, get up, and give them a hug and kiss. Make sure you kiss them first thing when you walk in the door and last thing before bed.
I hope you found these 6 ways to show your spouse love helpful. Would you add anything to the list?
