10 Things to Do for Your Wife Every Year

After 16 years of marriage, we’ve experienced a lot. The hope each year is that our marriage will continue to improve. That is easier said than done. The best way to ensure your marriage improves is to be intentional.

If you don’t say and do things intentionally, then you’re putting your marriage at risk.  I don’t want to take a chance with my most important relationship. When your words and actions are intentional, the hope of a better marriage becomes reality.

Here are 10 things to do for your wife every year.

  1. Take a trip alone with her.
  2. Make a big deal about her birthday.
  3. Give her a weekend away.
  4. Get dressed up (suit and tie) and take her on a date.
  5. Pray continually for her and with her.
  6. Take her to the place of your first date.
  7. Give her a week off from “mom duties.”
  8. Take her to a show.
  9. Write a love letter to her.
  10. Give her a head to toe massage without expecting anything.

    This was written by a man so not completely accurate

      Funny, you are complaining about an article written by a husband who wants to do things for his wife. Even marginalizing his thoughts on the subject and implying that he doesn’t listen to his wife. When there are plenty of women married to men who could care less about there opinions. Maybe applaud the man instead of marginalizing his opinions.

        That seems to be a pattern with the responces

        If this had an “standing ovation” emoji, you would get one.

    • I’m sure this list is not completely accurate. Everyone is different & will appreciate different gifts of affection. I do however, appreciate these great ideas. Thanks Jackie 🙂
