#1. Love Your Wife, and Show Your Love to Her, Every Day

Love Your Wife, and Show Your Love to Her, Every Day

Marriage is a two-way street. For your marriage to be healthy, you need to take steps to make it stronger, too. Doing things that don’t demonstrate your love is more harmful than doing a handful of actions that display your love regularly.

As mentioned in the title, it’s important to “love your wife” daily. This means showing it verbally at different times throughout the day and through actions such as remembering special moments with her and doing small things for her throughout the day (such as making breakfast in bed). Also, having regular date nights and talking about your future together can go a long way in solidifying the love between you and your spouse.

#2. Know Her Love Language

Each person has different ways they feel loved. The key to a strong marriage is knowing your spouse’s love languages. Generally, five love languages are used: gifts, acts of service, physical touch, quality time, and words of affirmation.

When you know her love language, you know how she genuinely feels loved. You can then do everything possible to express your love in the way she loves best (for example, bringing flowers on occasion or planning weekend dates with her). In addition, this will help you find different ways to love her in a way that feels genuine, and she understands.

#3. You’re Not Perfect; Don’t Try to Be

Sometimes, we want our spouse to be the perfect partner who meets all of our needs and desires. The problem with this is that no one is perfect! Don’t expect perfection from yourself or your spouse. Instead, appreciate the effort they make and how they already impact your life positively every day.

One way to do this is by ignoring the negative things you say about your spouse and focusing on the positive. You might jokingly call them a “jerk” or make fun of their looks or physical appearance. Instead, try to focus on what they do well and say positive things about them to others. They will appreciate it!

#4. Treat Her Gently and With Respect

Treat Her Gently and With Respect

This one may seem obvious, but it’s important for healthy marriages. As mentioned earlier, you should treat your spouse with kindness every day. This means supporting her when she makes mistakes and not punishing her for them.

When she makes small mistakes, try not to yell at or punish her – instead, speak to her in a calm voice and tell her what mistake she made so that she can learn from it. Also, remember that women have different reactions than men when it comes to conflict. She will likely react differently than you in heated arguments – don’t take this personally!

#5. Be a Good Listener

Marriages can be rocky from time to time, and couples often end up with arguments. But if you and your spouse are partners in a close relationship, you both need to listen and hear each other out before making any final decisions. Try not to interrupt your partner during conversations with him or her. Instead, say something like, “You go first,” or “I’m listening so I can understand.”

Also, note that it’s important not to focus on what you want to say next when it comes to listening. For example: “I think we should…” instead of: “…do this.” She will appreciate the fact that you’re listening. She may have additional ideas that he may have forgotten about, which will help the situation (i.e., she might have forgotten about doing a chore for you, but it’s important to do).

#6. Show Physical Affection

You should be able to express your love and appreciation physically and verbally. This means showing her physical affection in the forms of hugs, kisses, and touching (i.e., holding hands while you walk together or gently touching her arm during a conversation). When you show physical affection to your spouse, she may feel loved and appreciated even if she doesn’t receive verbal acknowledgments of her efforts.

Romance is fundamental to married couples and has been shown to help marriages deal with conflict. You can show your partner how important she is to you by doing small things like sending her flowers at work or taking her out for a special dinner every once in a while.

#7. Employ Compliments in Your Communication

Employ Compliments in Your Communication

This is another simple one, but it can have a big impact on your relationship with your spouse if you do it daily. When you make an effort to compliment each other on small things, it helps the other person feel valued and appreciated, which they love! Try complimenting your partner’s appearance (i.e., hair, clothes), personality, or what they do for you (such as cleaning up in the house).

Even if your spouse doesn’t know that you’re doing this, he/she will appreciate the effort. People will notice, and it may help a bit.

#8. Honor Your Commitments to One Another

Honoring commitments to one another can be difficult sometimes, but you must do so in a healthy way. This means being honest when promises are made and not breaking them unless there is a valid reason (such as saving money or time). Honesty is also important when talking about your feelings and communicating about conflict in the relationship.

In other words: say what’s on your mind without hurting anyone else or making them feel vulnerable (i.e., “I’m sad,” rather than “You’re making me mad”).

#9. Respect Your Spouse’s Independence

Every marriage has a strength, weaknesses, and desired personality differences. You must respect these differences as they will help your spouse be happy and allow you to engage in healthy activities together (e.g., hobbies, volunteer work). It’s also important to respect one another’s ability to make their own decisions around money, health, and chores throughout the day so that you can have some personal time and flexibility in your lives together.

Just like with independence of choice, it’s important not to pressure or guilt your spouse into doing something they don’t want to do by saying something like “You should…” or “It would be easier if….” If your spouse is trying to start a business on their own and make a lot of money, you shouldn’t pressure them into quitting their job since this could negatively impact their business.

#10. Trust Your Spouse

Trust Your Spouse

This is an extremely important aspect of marriage that’s often overlooked. Your spouse will always do her best to be the best partner she can be – in all things she does! She will always want what’s best for you and your relationship. The key is to trust that she is doing the best she possibly can and respect her for it.

Don’t assume anything about her feelings or motivations behind certain actions – this could lead to unintentionally damaging your relationship (i.e., assuming that she doesn’t care about you because she’s not talking to you). Don’t be afraid to ask your spouse questions and trust her answers (i.e., if they don’t want to do something, ask why and try to understand their perspective).

#11. Spend Quality Time Together as a Couple

The one thing that many couples lose sight of is how important quality time together is! It’s important not only to spend time talking together in the evening but also to do enjoyable things for both of you (such as watching a movie, going for a walk, or having coffee). Make sure that you spend some time each day doing something just for the two of you.

This will show her that she is important to you and matters to you.

#12. Be There for Each Other

Last but not least, be there for each other when you need it. When your spouse is having a problem or has a problem, take the time to listen and understand them by doing things like asking questions and making sure to show them that you’re concerned. This can help alleviate their worries without making her concerns seem like they’re not important (i.e., “It’s fine! Really!”).

It’s also helpful to let her know when things are going fine (e.g., “You’re doing great in school,” instead of “That’s great, how did your tests go?”), or compliment her if she did a good job (i.e., “I’m proud of you for x, y and z”).

#13. Share Responsibilities

Share Responsibilities

As we’ve talked about, sharing responsibilities is essential for both spouses in the marriage. This means doing half of the chores, taking care of the children, and being supportive in making major decisions together (i.e., finances, career choice).

Noticing that your partner has a great career opportunity that helps improve their standing and salary is just as important as recognizing a great job when you see it.

You may have to compromise on some things, but overall, it’s important to share responsibilities, so you can both help one another and feel good about your spouse’s growth.

#14. Don’t Compare

Comparison is one of the worst things you can do in a marriage. Many people do this unknowingly, but it doesn’t help your relationship at all. Making comparisons between yourself and other individuals will only lead to feelings of inferiority, jealousy, and hurt for your spouse (as well as annoy them).

Instead of comparing, focus on what you like about yourself and what you like about your spouse. This can lead to more positive feelings towards both of you, which is much better for the relationship!

#15. Be Honest About Issues in the Relationship

If there are problems within a relationship, it’s important to address them instead of being ignored or denied. Denial never helps any relationship, and it’s only a matter of time before it comes out into the open. Problems will only worsen if they aren’t addressed properly, so ask your spouse about things when you get upset or feel something is wrong. This way, you can try to solve problems together and make sure that your relationship improves.

To sum it up, these are just a few of the many things that you can do to stay connected to your spouse throughout the day. It’s all about making an effort to make each other feel loved and appreciated daily – sometimes, even the smallest gestures can make a big difference! Remember that marriage isn’t all about doing what your spouse wants. While he/she will “rule” your household, you have an equal voice as well in deciding how things will run (i.e., who does what chores or makes which decisions).
