Relationship Habits

Strong marriages don’t happen by accident. They’re the result of intentional “relationship habits” practiced by both partners.

“Relationship habits” are those little things we do every day to let our partners know how much we care for them. They don’t have to be elaborate or expensive, just sincere.

Holding hands as you walk down the street is a simple way to say to your spouse, “I love being with you.” And it lets them know that you’re still proud to be their spouse.

A quick hug as you pass them in the hall never gets old, no matter how many times you do it. We all need affection in life, especially from our spouses.

And never underestimate the power of a simple note, or a small bouquet of flowers, just to let them know you care. When it comes to building a strong marriage, it’s the little every day habits that speak the loudest.
