"I love you"

When was the last time you looked at your spouse and said “I love you”?

If you can’t remember the last time stop reading immediately and tell your spouse. It doesn’t matter if it is via text message, posting it on their Facebook wall, calling them, sending an email, or walking into the other room and simply saying “I love you.”

If you do remember the last time go and tell them again, right now.

I’m not sure if there are three more powerful words in marriage. I do know that they should be said as often as possible. My wife and I feel that it is so important to constantly remind each other how we feel that we made a “rule” for ourselves early on in our marriage that we were going to end every conversation with “I love you.” And we do.

It’s actually kind of fun trying to find as many ways and as many situations as possible to tell my sweet wife that I love her. Sometimes it is at random times during the day. I’ll be sitting on the couch reading a book to the children and pause for a second to yell “I LOVE YOU!” to my wife who is in the other room. Sometimes she’ll yell back that she loves me too. Other times she’ll jump into the front room with a gigantic smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye and gently and sweetly reply “I love you too.” Just the other day she went into Subway to buy some sandwiches and I stayed in the car with the children (it’s just too much hassle sometimes to unpack and repack them all). While she was in Subway I sent her a text message telling her I loved her. When she returned she had that same sweet smile and twinkle in her eye. In order to paint an accurate picture I must relate that she is actually far better at telling me that she loves me than I am about telling her. For every one time I tell her she probably tells me twice. I’ve got a good woman.

Why should we tell our spouse we love them so often? Shouldn’t they already know? Yeah, they should already know…because we tell them so often and show them so frequently. 

No matter how often you currently tell your spouse that you love them, whether it be once a month or once an hour, double it. Tell them twice as often. I guarantee that you will see a change in your marriage, increased unity and love, for the better very soon.
