Married couples share nearly every moment and experience, including the good ones and the bad. In order to have the best possible relationship, then, spouses should ensure that they make small gestures which remind their partner that they are cared for. This can include using emotional language, doing favors, and making time every day for your partner, no matter how busy you may be. These seemingly minor things can add up to have a major collective benefit for the relationship.
- According to Eli Finkel, author of The All or Nothing Marriage, small gestures can make a positive difference in a marriage and help couples to nurture long-lasting love and passion.
- One of Finkel’s “lovehacks” is simply to make a habit of being kind to one another and using words like please, thank you, and sorry.
- Make plans for your future as a couple but also remain content and focused on your present life together.
“Finkel explains that many easy to implement actions or “lovehacks” aimed at improving your marriage can be done in five minutes or less. For instance, you can write your partner an endearing and charming love note for him or her to see or hold their hand during a conflict.”
