Remember the time before marriage, when you were courting, or dating and you could not get enough of each other? Once you married, work, family and children took over and there is hardly any time now for each other. You are just living under the same roof and nothing else. Guess what, you can do the things below and kindle the fire all over again!
Gifts are special gestures. Most men do not even remember anniversaries, forget giving non-occasional gifts! Therefore, make it a point to remember important anniversaries and give good gifts when they arrive, like roses, clothes and so on. Make sure to make her feel special on the special day. You can do this easily by setting reminders on your phone. Also surprise her with non-occasional gifts, and she will feel really touched and loved all over again.
Take her out on dates. It is highly impossible to get alone time at home with children and a large family. Keep your phone away while you are with her and make her the center of your attention. Make sure to treat her with good food and drink, and of course, a sumptuous desert. Try talking to her about her importance in your life rather than mundane everyday things and work.
Make gestures like you used to when you were dating. Give her a naughty smile from across the room in a room full of people, break out into a song for her, and send her a text sneakily during the work day. Nothing touches her heart more than the fact that you think of her all the time and want to make her feel special and loved.
Try to take a holiday together without anyone else, if possible, even if it means a couple of days. Although family holidays with children and other members are important for bonding, you and your wife are the stronghold and you need to be the most connected. Therefore, taking some alone days helps you to understand each other and feel the love all over. Exchanging each other’s sorrows, joys and tensions helps you to bond. The physical intimacy is an added bonus.
Nothing makes a woman happier than a husband who participates in her life. Whether your wife works or manages the children, the care of the house is an additional and often tiring role she plays. Help her out with washing, cleaning, grocery shopping or taking care of the children. Not only will it lighten the load and let her know that you are there for her, but it will also help you two spend good quality time together.
