Do you want to improve your marriage and bring more fun and spontaneity into your life together?
Here are 15 little ways to remind your husband how much his love and friendship mean to you.
Is there anything more comforting than a hug from your best friend?
1 . Be Courteous To Each Other
Be attentive to your words.
It costs absolutely nothing to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’ often.
Good manners are important, no matter how long you’ve been married!
Being your lover’s best friend isn’t just about being comfortable and casual with him all the time.
Don’t forget that building a strong friendship with someone means being kind, considerate, and grateful.
2 . Send Love Messages To Each Other
Write a love letter to your partner at least once a month, but try to write a love letter at least once a week.
Love notes can be as simple as a sweet post-it note left in your briefcase, an attractive doodle on your bathroom mirror, or a romantic phrase sent via email.
Remember when you were a teenager in high school and how fun it was to send handwritten notes to your best friend in class.
3 . Don’t Underestimate Your Husband If You Want Him To Be Your Best Friend Too
Express your gratitude and appreciation every day.
Make even the simplest occasions grand by toasting your husband before a meal, even if that meal is sushi you ordered to deliver while you flip through Netflix trying to decide what to watch together.
4 . Make Small Sacrifices
When you decide what to watch on TV together, watch the shows or movies your loved one loves, even if their favorites aren’t your thing.
The time we spend together is precious, no matter what you’re doing.
Being your spouse’s best friend involves giving and receiving.
5 . Read Books Aloud To Each Other
Think about how safe, protected, and loved you felt as a child, when a parent, grandparent, or other trusted friend read to you at bedtime.
Or remember when you and your best friend used to read comic books or teen magazines together?
It was always fun to share stories with your best friend when you were a kid, so why not do the same as an adult.
6 . Don’t Take His Efforts For Granted
Watch when your spouse does something unexpected.
Then give thanks!
If you want to be your husband’s best friend, don’t take anything for granted.
7 . Be The First To Say Sorry After A Fight
It doesn’t matter who started it (you’re not eight, after all).
When you’re your spouse’s best friend, you don’t have to be proud.
Showing vulnerability to each other is what makes a friendship strong.
When you are your spouse’s best friend, you don’t want to be angry because you know that every moment wasted in anger is a moment that is wasted on having fun and enjoying life!
Being your husband’s best friend is like getting a lifetime supply of hugs!
8 . Love (Or At Least Be Kind To) The People He Love
Treat your partner’s family and friends with the same love, attention, and respect that you treat people who are important to you!
9 . If You Share A Car, Fill The Tank With Gasoline
Take it to the car wash.
When your partner is stressed and in a rush to work, the last thing he wants when he’s already late is having to stop and fill up or ride around in a smelly car.
Best friends find ways to make each other’s lives easier and less stressful.
10 . Make Him Smile, Even When You’re Not With Him
Send spontaneous messages or links to funny websites during the day.
11 . When Your Partner Is Tired, Let Him Sleep
When he’s in a bad mood, leave him alone.
When he’s hungry, offer to have a snack.
Responding to your partner’s physical and emotional needs is a gentle way of saying ‘I love you!’ If your best friend was feeling tired and down, you would be there to offer him love and comfort, wouldn’t you?
So think about how to offer love and comfort to your husband when he’s having a bad day and needs some intensive care.
12 . Don’t Gossip About Your Love Life
If you need advice about romance, talk to a professional, a counselor, anyone you trust to keep your private life a secret.
Think about how you would feel if you knew that your partner’s buddies knew about all of your intimate things.
13 . Do Not Interrupt
Sometimes when you know someone really well, you feel like you can finish your sentences.
But just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
Say ‘I love you’ by being a good listener.
14 . Don’t Be Afraid To Ask For Kisses And Hugs When You Need Them
And be generous in return.
When you are open to asking for more affection, he will be more open to giving love and affection.
15 . Remind Him Why You Are Crazy About Him
Tell your partner how smart, attractive, cool, funny (insert your favorite adjective here) you think he is.
Don’t just offer compliments on bad days, offer them randomly for no reason other than to remind him how wonderful he is!
Does your husband have a specific skill or talent that you admire and appreciate?
So be sure to tell him!
Being best friends means supporting and encouraging each other’s hopes and dreams.
