It’s the little things in marriage that matter most. Do you still kiss her hello and goodbye? Do you tell her you will miss her when you are apart? Do you hug her and hold her hand? Women really don’t need grand gestures – they need to be reassured daily that their husband loves them and finds them attractive. She really needs to know that he is in the relationship because he still wants to be, not out of a sense of obligation.
Well done for acknowledging the rough patch and asking for tips – that is a good start. Firstly you need to realize that you can never take your wife for granted. Although she married you, it was only the beginning of your relationship and you need to continue winning her heart every day. If you have stopped doing those little things you did in the beginning like bringing her flowers and leaving love notes in the bathroom – start again. Don’t expect her to be perfect, make allowances and most of all forgive her. Make time to make love, often. She needs to know that you still love and want her. And talk to her- women need conversation. She needs you to encourage her and celebrate with her about the things which are important to her.
