If you have a marriage that was made in heaven you won’t need to read this. You can write it better than me. My marriage hasn’t been perfect (though we are perfect for each other) and so I have been learning how I can love my hubby every day!
It doesn’t matter how long you have been married, eventually, even for the couples that get along the best, the honeymoon eventually ends.
If you are like us, you might not have the skills to make it work and you might not have the time or money to go to one of those marriage retreats.
We never did.
How to Love Your Hubby Every Day
It is easiest to love your hubby every day before you have children. Once kids come along your time and responsibilities increase to the point that it is easy to crowd out your husband.
This happened to me but it wasn’t me who realized it. My husband was the one who was neglected and missing the extra attention he had before our first baby was born.
The thing is that one day the kids are grown and if you don’t do something to repair any broken links in your relationship, you will wake up one day and neither of you will know who you are married to!
For this reason, get to know each other through the years.
MAKE time for each other.
Learn to CHERISH each other.
You will one day NEED each other when your nest suddenly empties.
6 Ways to Love Your Hubby Every Day
Husbands can get bitter when we neglect them.
We can spat back and forth with each other compounding the relational problems we are having with each other.
Don’t push off your hubby to repair your relationship some other day when the kids are grown.
Christian husbands and wives are leaving each other for someone else at an alarming rate. Take this seriously and invest into your hubby and love him every. single. day.
- Look at him and give him EYE CONTACT when he speaks to you.
- Stop what you are doing and LISTEN.
- Go on a ‘Date Night’ or have an ‘At Home Date Night’ every couple weeks or more often.
- MEET HIM AT THE DOOR when he comes home from work.
- PICK UP AFTER HIM without complaining. Yes, do this!
- DO SPECIAL THINGS FOR HIM to show you love him.
I need reminders to do these things as much as you do. It is too easy to be ‘in the moment’ with the kids and absent minded when our husbands talk to us or come home.
Personally, I need to stop making excuses why I don’t faithfully do all these things each day and invest in my hubby each and every single day loving on him. If you and I do these things, we will be ready for that day when the last child moves out and we will honestly be able to say that our husband is our very best friend.
Do you have any specific thoughts on how to carry out any of the ways we can love our hubby every day?
