How to thank your spouse or partner with meaningful love quotes

Messages and love quotes to make your partner or spouse feel special

It’s so easy to take someone for granted, particularly if it concerns an important person in your life, such as your partner or spouse.

Somehow, they must know that you love them – it’s a given. So, why thank them for something that’s so obvious – a bit over the top, isn’t it?

Oh no, it isn’t!

It’s just as easy for someone, particularly your partner or spouse, to feel unappreciated, bypassed, not taken into consideration, unimportant or even ‘forgotten’.

This sense of creeping dissatisfaction is only increased if household chores are not shared equally. They may start to feel that you never do anything for them.

… a successful relationship doesn’t just depend on how partners divide labor, but on how they each express gratitude for the labor the other one contributes.”

They may initially let small transgressions go as they’re only briefly aware. However, as time goes by these slights can begin to accumulate and grate.

The impact of these on the quality of your relationship will be even greater if you seldom notice how much your partner does for you and takes you into consideration.

So, ‘splash out’ every now and then, with a small note with a love quote for him or her. Hide it in a pocket, in a bag, on a car seat or where ever you think it will have an impact.

Finally

Being in a relationship and making it a success takes time and effort. Relationship skills need to be learned, they don’t come flying in on a breeze of fresh air.

Of course, you’re going to make mistakes (I only know too well!), of course, you’re going to have regrets (or I hope so). Know that by getting things wrong you’ll learn how to get things right and what works for you both.

By publicly declaring how much your partner or spouse means to you with special messages of appreciation and love quotes, you’ll stand a much better chance to be forgiven for your oversights.
