This person for who you took vows to make every moment happy and lovable is your life partner, your spouse. Love brings you together, in a relationship, which should be nourished and strengthened daily. You definitely want your spouse to feel loved and respected but how?
Right now, it’s your “know your spouse” time. You have to try different ideas and figure out the best ways to make it work. Let us help you with some of our ideas:
Know by observing
First of all, observe the way she or he shows love for you. You can catch up trail of it by observing little things. Check if your spouse likes to slip affectionate notes or text you in the middle of the day or say you “I love you” without any occasion. The way she or he expresses emotions is a hint that the same way she or he wants to be loved in return. All the little details will help you to make your sweetheart know that you understand your spouse’s feelings and needs.
Learn love languages for your spouse to feel loved
Words of affirmation, physical touch, receiving gifts, act of service and quality time are considered to be five love languages known in human psychology. You need to figure out that which love language your spouse prefers and pay heed to when showing her or his love.
Picking up the right cord of love will help you to understand your spouse’s emotions which will benefit you in making your relationship strong.
Keep communication two ways
Communication starts when you are not even in a relationship with your spouse. Through the passage of time, communication lags behind and partners go suffer issues in their marital life. Whatever circumstances may form up, communication should be continued and without being judgmental. It is important to hear your spouse’s perception of doing things and not just focusing on your agenda only.
Communication is not just talking and listening but to make each other believe that life would not be the same if you are not in here. It is about telling your intensity of love for your spouse. You need to share your thoughts with your spouse about the way you feel for her or him. It should be about admitting that you trust her or him completely and want to spend rest of your life together.
Communication is to validate the importance of your spouse in your life.
Do not look for perfection, nobody is
Your relationship with your spouse will have to pass many pitfalls and every difficult situation will likely reveal a weakness or imperfection of your spouse. But you have chosen her or him as your life partner. Despite all the imperfections, she or he is your life and home maker. Chasing a person with perfection is near to impossible. When you accept your flaws then there should not be any hesitation in accepting your better half’s flaws.
Try not to bring up issues of the past. It will harm the communication between both of you. If the issue is resolved and you two have accepted your fate then move on and let go of past mistakes.
Look for a new reason, an idea, a thought and an inspiration, to make your spouse’s day special. Turn ordinary into cherished moments. Change distasteful topics and discuss more about love and affection you two feel for each other.
