Have date nights
Before you married, you probably had date nights. So, keep the tradition going. Set a day or night when you're both free and when your schedule is clear. Do things that both made you happy in the past. Some ideas:
- Candlelight dinners;
- Massage nights;
- Movie nights;
- Find a new hobby that you'll both enjoy;
- Cook a meal together.
This list can go on, but the goal is to be creative with your date nights and have fun!
Tackle problems together

Make your spouse your best friend
You have a lifetime with your partner, so you need to make your spouse your companion. The one whom you trust the most and someone with whom you can share your deepest feelings and secrets with. The best way to get going on this is to start by having little conversations with them, start by developing a bond and take it from there.
Set financial goals
Beyond date nights and loving each other to the fullest, finances play an essential role in your marriage irrespective if one partner is the breadwinner. From the early stages, start setting financial goals. Explain what you want and let your partner tell you what he wants too.
Some common financial goals might include purchasing a home, saving for retirement, starting a business, etc. Also, if either of you is in serious debt, don't hide it, tackle it together.
Respect your partner's choices
After all, you are one of them! Apart from respecting your partner's choice, ensure that you get the same in return. Speak about it openly with your spouse and again compromise where needed.
Just like choices, you can also set healthy boundaries in your relationship. Learn how to do this and read this article by Denell Henefield, Online Life Coach.
Say "I love you" all the time
You would not marry someone who you do not love. Therefore, there is nothing wrong with saying it all the time and reminding your partner that you love him deeply! More than just saying these famous 3-letter words, prove it! Be affectionate towards your partner physically.
