SAY SOMETHING NICE ABOUT HER FAMILY
Share something you enjoy about at least one of her family members. An attribute, a skill, an achievement.
OUT OF NOWHERE
Surprise your wife with something unexpected. Out of nowhere. Make sure the surprise is about her and not about you.
HAVE A 'REMEMBER WHEN' MOMENT
Deliberately call to mind the highlights of your life together. Talk about special moments, revisit special places, watch home videos, look at old pictures or listen to special songs.
ADD IMPORTANT DATES TO YOUR CALENDAR.
Never forget your anniversary, her birthday or other important dates. Spend a few minutes entering these into your calendar. (TIP: Set to be reminded a week before.)
CREATE A LIST OF DATE IDEAS.
Create a list of things that you would like to do when you can go out. Be sure there are all kind of options on your list: Free activities or destinations; special evening type places; quick date spots; day trips.
CLEAN UP FROM SHABBOS TOGETHER.
It’s the ‘together’ part that is important. Offer your help. Not to take it over, but to do it together. And then comment on how nice it was to be together.
DO SOMETHING SHE'LL NEVER KNOW ABOUT.
Do it because you love and care about your wife. Not for reciprocation or out of guilt or obligation. Just because you want to make a tiny part of her life easier or better.
COMPLIMENT HER ON ONE OF HER STRENGTHS.
Show her that you notice who she is and what she brings to your life and to the world - her dedication to your family, her passion for her work, the way she always can help you out of a bad mood.
TELL HER SOMETHING YOU LEARNED FROM HER.
Show her how she has enriched your very being -how you became a better person because of her.
