Big gestures are wonderful (who wouldn't appreciate a surprise weekend getaway?). But, if we're being honest, it's the simple, everyday things that actually matter, especially in marriage. The tiny things you do for your partner on a daily basis show them that you care about them and the relationship. They also strengthen your relationship. Are you ready to jump right in? Make these five things a part of your everyday routine with your partner, according to our experts.
1. The love language of each individual should be spoken.
I'm quite sure most people are aware of the various love languages at this time. Words of affirmation, physical touch, quality time, acts of service, and gifts are the categories, for clarity's sake. Because poor communication is one of the major causes of divorce, and love languages are all about "expressing love" in a way that your partner can understand, it's critical that you and your spouse 1) understand each other's top two love languages and 2) speak them on a daily basis.
2. A selfless act
It's incredible how many individuals are not only selfish in their marriages, but also don't know it. To be selfish is to be consumed with oneself. When you're selfish, you don't give a damn if someone is begging you to stay with him, promising you the world, his heart, and soul. It makes no difference. You're free to do whatever you want. What you must do for your own good.
3. Communicate effectively
The average married couple spends only minutes a day in active and meaningful dialogue, believe it or not. It's also a well-known fact that communication diminishes with each passing year of marriage. That makes me sad since being able to connect with your partner brings so much joy. It's crucial to recognize that there are several degrees of discussion when it comes to communicating. Facts are the most superficial level, followed by thoughts and ideas, and finally, expressing our feelings and emotions with one another at the deepest level.
4. Touch frequently.
I realize how difficult it is to physically connect with your partner while being pushed in a million different directions. But the truth is that physical touch is an essential component of investing in your marriage, even when it's difficult to come by. Take stock of your marriage and locate times (or arrange times if you have to!) where you can be intentional about holding hands, being intimate or even patting your spouse's back as you walk through the kitchen. Physical touch communicates to your spouse that you are aware of them, that you want to be near them, What a fantastic investment.
5. Have fun together
Finally, schedule time with your spouse to have serious fun. Every day is ideal, but even once a week is sufficient. What will you do to have a good time? You can do whatever you want. Going to one of your favorite coffee shops or, if you have more time, taking a trip are both enjoyable activities for you. After all, one of the best ways to enhance your marriage is to go on adventures together. If you find it difficult to find time for pleasure, schedule frequent date evenings and don't be scared to try something new. Even if you're at home, creating a unique dinner or watching humorous videos may be a lot of fun. Oh, and adult entertainment is always welcome.
