  1. Most of these are great and simple things to do to show your spouse how you feel. I would just add as a precursor to mean it when you do these things and do not expect anything in return. Do it because you love them. Also, fight emotional and sexual ambivalence with everything you’ve got because it will eventually kill a relationship. DON’T make the kids, friends, family or work number one.
    Your spouse is #1 and has been since you fell in love with them. Sometimes we forget that.
    Try to remember that once upon a time, they were your soulmate, teammate, BFF and partner-in-crime, ride-or-die so do not make them suffer or feel lower in importance because you also have other priorities. The only thing that changed the way you treat them now versus then, is the way you treat them.

    P.S. Yes, I am a dude. I have enough sensitivity to sense things aren’t all good and am manly enough to want to do something about it.

    • You are correct, sometimes we forget our spouse should be our priority. I am glad to hear this from a male.

  2. I love #3!! I’ll have to implement some of these when my hubby comes home from deployment. #6 might be more like torture for us both at this point!
