A lot of married couples take their relationship for granted, which is a mistake. You need to let your spouse know you love them and treasure your relationship. There are things you should tell your partner every day to keep your relationship happy and healthy.
#1. “I love you.” They say that actions speak louder than words. It is true to some extent, but that doesn't mean you don't need to tell your spouse you love them. A lot of people need reassurance, so say “I love you” as much as you can, both with and without words.
#2. “I respect you.” Respect is one of the key requirements for a healthy marriage. You need to respect your partner's opinions, beliefs and choices and let your spouse know that you'll support them no matter what.
#3. “You're so hot.” Sure, marriage is not all about sex, but physical attraction is an important aspect of a relationship. If you want to avoid sex rut and prevent your relationship from getting stale, you need to let your partner know that they turn you on.
#4. “Sorry.” Everyone makes mistakes every now and then. If you want to maintain a healthy relationship, you need to be able to apologize when you are wrong or when you've screwed up. It's very important to forgive each other and move on.
#5. “I love it when you...” Compliment your spouse on anything you can think of. Compliments show that you care. Tell them they look great, tell them you love their smile, tell them their cooking is delicious.
#6. “I am thinking about you.” If you think about your spouse when you are apart, let them know about it. For example, you've seen something funny or cute that reminds you of them. Text or Snapchat your partner about it!
#7. “I miss you.” Telling your spouse that you miss them when you're not together will make them feel appreciated, wanted, and needed. Tell them you miss them even if you'll see each other in a couple of hours.
#8. “How was your day?” Seems like a lame question, but you should ask it anyway. Just don't treat it as a chore, make sure you sound like you're really interested and listen to your spouse's answer really attentively. Show them that you care and want them to share things with you.
#9. “Thank you.” Don't take for granted everything you spouse does for you and make sure they know how grateful you are. You can say “Thank you” or express your gratitude non-verbally, it doesn't matter. What matters is you don't hide your gratitude.
#10. “Good morning” and “Good night”. Start your day with greeting your spouse and end it with saying good night to them. It's a seemingly simple thing that will bring you closer together.
