2. Ask their opinion

Ask your spouse what they think about anything, whether it’s what you should wear that day or if you should take a new job. Your sweetheart will be grateful you value their opinion.

3. Help them

Sometimes, we have a hard time admitting we need help. Help your spouse where you see it’s needed, and do it with a smile.

4. Kiss like you mean it

Kiss your spouse like it’s the last time you’ll kiss them. This will give you at least a few seconds of intimacy every day which is so important especially when life gets crazy.

5. Give a sincere compliment

Sincerely compliment your sweet husband or wife. If your husband looks extra great today, tell him! If your wife made an extra delicious dinner, she’ll be tickled to know you loved it.

6. Have at least one deep conversation

Having a real conversation every day will do wonders for your relationship. It will help you learn about each other and grow as a couple.

7. Eat a meal together

Eating at least one meal together every day will give you time to talk and spend priceless one-on-one time together.

8. Put away the electronics for a little bit

Turn off the TV, put away your phone, take off your headphones and be in the moment with each other.

9. Pray for them

Pray for your love. This will help you be more in tune to what your spouse needs and how you can help them.

10. Say “thank you”

Let your spouse know you appreciate everything they do for your family. It takes two to build a home, so let them know you’re grateful for their efforts.

11. Say “I’m sorry”

Apologizing can be hard, especially when you don’t think you’re wrong. Being able to apologize will reduce tension and is a crucial part of a happy marriage.

12. Give a back rub

Give your spouse a back, foot or head rub every day. This will give you time to be close with each other, and you can even take turns so you’re both benefitting.

13. Ask what they need

Your spouse would like to think they’re a superhero, but they can’t do everything on their own. Help your honey with whatever he or she needs.

14. Husbands, be a gentleman. Wives, let him.

Don’t be afraid to open your wife’s door, and wives, don’t be afraid to let him. It’s fun to be treated like royalty every once in a while.

15. Give your all

Give your sweetheart everything you have. Put your best effort into building your marriage and developing a solid relationship with your spouse.

16. Just listen

Every day, give each other at least 10 minutes to talk. Talk about your day, your victories and your failures. Don’t try to fix anything while your love is talking, just listen.

17. Send a flirty text

If you don’t see your spouse during the day, send him or her a flirty text. It’s sure to make them smile and look forward to something when they get home.

18. Let them know you’re happy

There’s nothing better than knowing the person you love most is happy, so make sure you let each other know how happy you are.

19. Be proud of them

Whether your honey won a board game or landed a huge promotion at work, be proud of their accomplishments. Brag about your spouse to your friends and let your darling know that you think they’re awesome.

20. Give each other nicknames

Having nicknames can sound silly, but it’s something that you and your spouse can share with only each other.

21. Pay attention to what needs to be done, and do it

Don’t wait for your spouse to ask you to do the dishes, just do them. If both partners are doing this, you’ll never get backed up with housework and you’ll both be much happier.

22. Show your love

Don’t just tell your darling you love them, show it. Through small actions every day, you can have the best relationship of your life with your sweetheart.

There are countless things you can do for your spouse on a daily basis to show your love for them, and these are a few ideas to start out with. What are your favorite things to do for your love?
