Create Your Own Personal Love Story ‘Just Because’ You Are In Love

Too often, we let our daily life get in the way of showing affection and attention to our spouse. Here’s a disclaimer: I do not claim to be a marriage expert therefore, I am only sharing tips that have worked for my marriage.

Here are 10 simple ways to remind your spouse you care and that they mean so much to you.

10 simple ways to remind your spouse you love them.

1. Send out a morning text

A simple “I love you” or “thinking of you” can go a long way. Do you remember being in high school and awaiting a text message from your crush in anticipation? It shouldn’t have to stop just because you two are married.

2. Morning coffee date

Even just brewing a fresh pot of coffee for your partner is a nice way to start the day. Just drinking a cup together, before the day begins shows your spouse you care enough to squeeze some time in with them.

3. Nightly Prayers

You know when you tuck your kids into bed and say their prayers with them? Pray with your spouse. The old saying can be quite true, “A couple that prays together, stays together.”

4. Take a class together

I’m sure there are things you wish you could do with your spouse. Take a cooking class, salsa dance class, or even a swim class together! It’s a fun way to create more memories with your spouse. Make sure to take photos to look back on later in life.

5. Weekly Date Night

It’s so important to have a date night with your spouse, whether it’s at home or out. Making time for each other reminds you both how much you love each other.

6. Cook for one another

This is an oldie but a goodie. Packing your spouse a warm, love filled lunch could be just what they need during a busy and stressful work day. Even ordering their favorite takeout when you don’t feel like cooking shows them how thoughtful you are.

Love should be shown daily.

7. Tell your spouse one thing you love about them daily

Letting your spouse know how much you love them, is obviously important, but also taking the time to tell them a different thing you love about them daily shows a lot of effort on your part.

8. Pick your spouse up an inexpensive thoughtful gift

Everyone loves gifts, that’s no surprise. But putting thought into a gift is what your spouse is looking for, not how much it costs you. A funny Hallmark card with a private written joke is more valuable than a 14k necklace because of the time you took to write the joke. It’s the little things that count the most.

Writing love letters shouldn’t be a thing of the past.

9. Write your spouse a love letter or poem

Love poems and love letters will never go out of style. Romance means love poems and letters. This is a pleasant reminder that you can still be poetic and romantic, no matter how many years you’ve been together.

10. Holding your spouse’s hand in public

Don’t forget how it was when you first began dating each other.

Sometimes, when we have been with a person for so long we forget how holding their hand for the first time FELT. It feels nice and warm! Don’t forget that feeling or let go of it. Precious.

I hope these 10 simple ways help remind your spouse how much you care about them. Tell me in the comments below if you’ve used any of these steps today with your spouse❤️

    I love this! It is so important to remind your spouse how much you love them. There’s so many things we can do that doesn’t take a lot of time, yet it means so much. You do a great job providing great ideas that are easy to implement. I love the visuals that also go along with your blog. I’m pretty darn lucky to have a husband that does all these things. We even host a youtube channel together called Ant and Shira and created our own hashtag on instagram. Have you thought of having your spouse be a guest on your blog? I’ve found being creative with my husband in this way makes me love him even more. Would love to know your thoughts?

    1. Ooh I’d love to check out your YouTube channel! What do you guys discuss on there? Any vlogs? Yes I’ve considered having him guest on my blog that’d be a great way to spend some time connecting as well. Thanks so much for your input. Do you have a website too?

  2. Thank you for this reminder. Love is something that I seek more of from my husband but I could probably start the cycle by doing some of these loving actions to him first. All too often I wonder why I’m not getting what I need instead of giving to him first which starts the love train. Thanks!

    1. Sometimes we forget Jenna. I’m not perfect in my marriage either. I forgot for years. I’m just glad we always have tomorrow to make things better ❤️ lots of prayers. Let me know how things go ❤️❤️

  3. Love all of these ideas! I really like the idea of taking a class together. My fiancé & I took a few yoga classes together once & it was so much fun, definitely something I’d like to do again!
