Great Dates for your spouse.
Marriage is awesome, now know this that marriage is also hard. Take two different people and have them be together for the rest of there lives, is hard because we are all SELFISH. To the nth degree. So how do you love your spouse. Have a date night. Your poor, you don’t need money to have a date night. You have kids, great find another people with kids and switch kids, and go out.
Now lots of these things can cost money. But there are fun options like, walk around the park. Play Pokemon GO, go to the cheap theater there is one everywhere. go to the dollar store and get a puzzle.
The whole point is to be together.
Every spouse wants to be pursued. Valentines has come and gone and though its a halmark holiday some people say they don’t want anything but every girl wants to be the “popular” girl. Have their locker decorated and displayed as a prize. You remember the locker, they got flowers, it was decorated. Those type of things people remember and feel emensely loved.
So now your married does this mean spend $100’s of dollars on valentines. NO
Sticky not a room with things you love about her
Create paper flowers, pinterest was created for things like this
Send them a can of CRUSH soda.
Take a picture and send them to them to say how much you love them
Put music on and dance with them when they come home
Buy a tea light candles can get a GROSS amount of them at Big Lots for 2.99 and when they come in have the lights off and the candles everywhere
Food doesn’t have to be expensive it just has to be thoughtful
Its the thought, its telling your significant other that they are SPECIAL and showing it.
