20 Small, but Significant Ways to Make Your Spouse Feel Loved
This National Marriage Week
Guest Author, Brittney Moses
It’s National Marriage week, and we can’t think of a better time to practice gratitude for the gift of marriage, while still reflecting on ways we can love our spouses well on a day-to-day basis.
My husband and I always say that marriage is a mirror. Through our spouse, we see reflected back to us the rawest versions of ourselves, which makes the marriage journey not always so easy or perfect. Everything we do affects this other person who’s tethered to us in this life. In this, we’re actually challenged to be refined in our mental, physical, and spiritual wellness with our spouse, as well as focused on the love that Christ breathes.
In 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 we’re reminded that Christlike means:
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
And in the Spirit of This, Read on for 20 Ways to Make Your Spouse Feel Loved for National Marriage Week…

20 Small Ways to Make Your Spouse Feel Loved
- Give them a self-care day uninterrupted. Remember, self-care looks different for each individual.
- Leave love notes around the house for them to read.
- Run them a relaxing bath with candles and their favorite music after a long day.
- Ask if anything significant happened in their day that they want to talk about.
- Leave a love note for them to find in their car.
- Ask how you can pray for them, and then set aside time to pray for them and fellowship on any issues.
- Give them a massage.
- Arrange for a babysitter, so you can have some one-on-one time.
- Don’t complain for 24-hours straight.
- Watch their favorite movie or show together- or something they’ve been wanting to see.
Sometimes we can habituate with one another, rather than connecting one-on-one; we can find ourselves on autopilot through life.
Feel encouraged to take some time to intentionally reconnect with one another mentally, emotionally, and spiritually… and just see where these conversations lead you both!
Marriage is a Sacred Bond Crafted by God
Connect with Your Spouse Regularly
Traditional, family values are important, especially in times where a culture and society does not value the family unit. Through our relationship with Christ, the Father, we know that he wants us to hold our kin and community in high esteem, to honor our mother and father, to love our brothers and sisters, and to be there for others within the Christian community.
God teaches us, through His Word, that we are better when we stand together in community, in family, and in fellowship of His Name.
