Between busy schedules and long days, expressing love can fall by the wayside. We forget to compliment, to give gifts “just because,” to linger in our embrace. The things that say “I love you” seem to either not get said or not get through. This is a book about saying it-and hearing it-clearly. No gimmicks. No psychoanalyzing. Just learning to express love in your spouse’s language… Click/tap here to find out more on Amazon.com >>
1. Lots Of Sex!
Platonic friendships and marriages shouldn’t have a lack of sex in common. Nobody gets married to be in a platonic relationship.
If you can’t have sex for whatever reason, make sure you let your spouse know how much you enjoy it when you do, and how much you’re looking forward to the next romantic interlude.

2. Get Rid Of The Attitude
You may think you’re never wrong but you should at least consider the possibility. Many marriages end due to clashes of the ego. Make sure you add the word ‘we’ into your daily life.
Our egos give us a sense of me and mine. If both partners are fighting for their own interests with little regard for the other, then this can be a recipe for future separation.
This little book contains fill-in-the-blank lines describing some aspect of your affection for your beloved. Just complete each line and voilà: you have a uniquely personal gift your loved one will read again and again. Make it as mushy, racy, or witty as you choose!

3. Don’t Make Assumptions
We have the saying “when you assume you make an a**hole out of ‘u’ and ‘me'” for a very good reason.
In the majority of cases this saying hits the nail right on the head. Avoid assumptions by making sure you understand exactly what your partner meant. Ask them to explain it differently if you have any doubts. We often end up feeling angry and resentful for things that aren’t even real. Your partner can also feel confused, bitter, and lost because you accused them of something – which always ends up destroying trust.
4. Compliments Over Criticisms
Constant criticisms can undermine our confidence and often end up creating the problem of negative thinking. There’s also the dilemma of many people having trouble hearing compliments.
You should get in the habit of complimenting your spouse daily. They may think it slightly odd to start but pretty soon it will become ingrained as a natural relationship bolstering routine.
5. Couple Time
Being cooped up in a house together does not count as quality time together. Instead you need to go out on a date. Romantic walks, dinner at your favorite café, or popcorn and a movie at regular intervals where you can catch up on what is happening with your lives are a necessity. The day to day chaos of the household is not conducive to such conversations so take yourselves somewhere quieter.
6. Kissing Goodbye And Kissing Hello
Kisses and hugs are a way of affirming your connection, devotion, and commitment to each other.
Leaving for work in the morning should be punctuated with a quick hug and a kiss. Likewise, the return visit should elicit the same response. It may seem a trivial thing but it is a powerful relationship building technique. Plus you will also get a warm glow whenever you think about it during the day.
7. Talk More Openly, More Often, And More Honestly
You need to be brave as many people have trouble opening up – even to a close loved one. You may feel vulnerable speaking so candidly about your innermost feelings but you’ll enjoy the benefits it brings. After all, you can’t really expect your partner to understand your needs if you never let them know what they are.
Less monologues and more dialogues are the order of the day. Don’t just focus on the facts but make sure to put a bit of emphasis on the feelings as well. Busy couples who work different hours may need to schedule this time together. Make sure you do as it’s very important for a strong and long-lasting relationship.
