Create A Special Feeling
Take time out of your busy schedule to make your partner feel special and loved. Go out on dates, cook dinner, go camping or star gazing with your partner.
Motivate, inspire, encourage and cheer on your spouse always. Be supportive of them at their weakest moments and of their dreams and achievements.
An apology doesn’t make you less human. When you’re wrong or have made mistakes, simply say you’re sorry and mean it from the bottom of your heart.
Explanations can come after they have calmed down, but an apology is a priority.
Give Them Space
Allow your spouse some alone time to go out for drinks or hang out with their friends. Don’t act jealous or try to end their friendship with other people.
Don’t use hurtful or unkind words on each other. Respect their choices, likes, dislikes, and boundaries.
If they say they don’t like something, give them that respect by not doing it. Don’t try to “strong arm” them into doing what you want.
