We live in an age where time is rapidly speeding up. Distances are getting shorter, work hours are getting longer, and efficiency is crucial to have a successful life.
We live in an age where time is rapidly speeding up. Distances are getting shorter, work hours are getting longer, and efficiency is crucial to have a successful life. Fortunately, amongst all the hurry and the haste, some things have been left untouched- love, trust, and companionship.
Making your spouse feel extraordinary is simple and exponentially rewarding. It is only through a two-way street of respect, benevolence, love, and trust that couples can reach what Martin Luther idealised:
Let the wife make the husband feel happy to come home, and let him make her sorry to see him leave.
Caught up in the glamour of the world around, we sometimes forget how easy it is to make a loved one happy. You don’t need to buy your significant other a diamond ring to make them feel special, a loving gaze and a bunch of flowers will do the trick. The way a wife swoons when her husband surprises her with a bouquet of roses has not changed, neither has the way a husband’s eyes light up when his wife sends a box of his favourite chocolates to him at work.
If you’ve want to get your spouse a great present but have trouble deciding on something, remember that it’s your love that gets their heart racing, not the present. A timely “I love you” slipped into the conversation can be more potent that any diamonds you buy her. Giving him space yet being there for him is a gift he’ll really appreciate. It is only by loving someone that we can truly enjoy and relish affection they lavish on us.
Make sure that no matter how long you’ve been together; your romantic life never gathers dust. The easiest way to make a loved one feel amazing is for their partner to constantly remind them how cherished, capable and loved they are. These small compliments are what keep hearts tied up together for a lifetime. Or you can do one better, take a gift and add your distinct flavor to it: notes and card full of sweetness along with an equally thoughtful present.
No matter how good you are with understanding your spouse mood, give them time, listen to them. You may not always have solutions to their problems, but a shoulder to lean on to and a sympathetic ear is all they need. Embed these small behaviours in your life and your spouse will soon be radiant with all the love they receive from you. So wherever you are and whatever you're doing, pause your work for a minute and text/call your significant other to remind them how lucky you feel to have their smile brighten up their day. Love is simple, make the most of it.
