Once you have opened up the lines of communication, and you are able to trust you partner, it is time to make them feel special and make their lives easier. I began doing this with my husband about six months ago and the results have been amazing!
One day I decided that I was going to do one nice thing each day for him, and not tell him that I was doing this. It doesn’t have to be a big gesture; the simplest tasks will do. For example, I would take out the trash (usually his chore), start his laundry, make him cupcakes, or buy him little gift ($5 movie from Target) No matter how big or small the deed is it will still show this person that you care.
After a week of doing this (keep in mind he did not know) he began to reciprocate the thoughtful actions. Which in turn made me very excited. He always told me that I made him happy before, but now he appears to be very grateful and it feels really good.
No one has a perfect marriage and we are all going to have difficult times, but it is so important to take the time to make the sweet moments even sweeter.
