8 Ways to Show Your Husband Love

by: Tammy Greene

Healthy and happy marriages are not something that just happens by chance. They are the result of being nurtured and cared for on a regular basis.

A healthy marriage requires conscious daily effort to survive and thrive. In honor of that, I just wanted to share with you a few ideas on how you can show your husband some love.  Show your spouse what he means to you by going that extra mile to show him how much you love and appreciate him. Don’t forget that grand gestures are awesome, but even the simplest of loving expressions can do wonders for the health and well-being of your relationship.

Try these fun suggestions to show your husband some love:

Say Thank You! 

We seem to live in a society that has forgotten the simple power of a “thank you.” Don’t let that be the case in your relationship, too. A little appreciation goes a long way. No matter how big or small, it is important to let your spouse know that what they do does not go unnoticed.

Give an unexpected kiss.

I am talking a real one! How long has it been since the last time you gave your spouse a really good meaningful kiss? Sometimes the hectic challenges of life get in the way of the most basic and simplest gestures of love. Pucker up and give him a kiss!

Send the kids to Grandma’s.

Show your hubby that you miss him and want some alone time by taking it upon yourself to arrange a date night at home without the kiddos. Use whatever resources you have to arrange for a babysitter so that the two of you can be alone. It is important to remind your husband how much you enjoy his company.

Watch the kids so he can go to the gym.

Support your man’s health by watching the kids so that he can get some exercise. Encourage him to take some time for himself so that he can focus on his own health and happiness.

Give him a shoulder massage.

Many people hold stress in their shoulders and neck. Help him unwind with a good shoulder massage to relieve the stress from the day.

Send a very sexy text. Then follow thru!

Have him thinking about you all day by sending him a sexy message in the middle of the workday. Distract him with thoughts about you. But be sure to follow thru on any promises. Teasing is only fair if you are prepared to follow thru with action.

Sit down with him and watch the game.

Show him that you value what is important to him by sitting with him to watch his favorite sport. Show interest by getting to know the rules and players of the game. It is always fun to share something that you love with someone important to you.

Initiate intimacy!

We all have a need to feel wanted, your man included. Make him feel desired by initiating intimacy. There is no better way to make your husband feel loved than to show him how attracted you are to him.

It doesn’t take much to make someone feel loved and appreciated. Small gestures of love can go a long way toward building a strong relationship. Being happily married is a daily choice.  You cannot sit back and hope for a happy marriage, you have to create one.

Here are some words we should say more often.
