37 Things to Say to Your Spouse

Who doesn’t love to hear sweet nothings whispered in our ear from our loved one? A little bit of affirmation goes a long way in a marriage, whether you have been married a couple months or more years than you can remember!

At my most recent MOPS meeting (Mothers of Preschoolers) our speaker gave us a list of things to say to our spouse on a regular basis. I thought it would be a wonderful list to share with all of you as we sometimes struggle with so many pressures that the “normal married couple” doesn’t even dream of. So without further adieu:

37 Things to say to your spouse

  1. Good Job
  2. You are wonderful
  3. That was really great
  4. You look cute, gorgeous, handsome, or good today
  5. I don’t feel complete without you
  6. I appreciate all the things you have done for me over the years
  7. You come first in my life, before the kids, career, friends, anything
  8. I’m glad I married you
  9. I like you
  10. I like it when you ___________
  11. If I had to do it over I’d marry you again
  12. I wanted you today
  13. I missed you today
  14. I couldn’t get you out of my head today
  15. It is nice to wake up next to you, or fall asleep next to you
  16. I will always love you
  17. I love the way your eyes sparkle when you smile
  18. I trust you
  19. I appreciate you for _______________
  20. I know I can always count on you
  21. You make me feel good
  22. I am proud to be married to you
  23. I am sorry
  24. I was wrong
  25. What would you like
  26. What is on your mind
  27. Let me just listen
  28. You are special
  29. I can’t imagine life without you
  30. I am trying to be a better partner
  31. What can I do to help you?
  32. Pray for me
  33. I am praying for you today
  34. Thank you for loving me
  35. Thank you for accepting me
  36. Thank you for being my partner
  37. You make every day brighter

Perhaps if you just made it a point to say one thing a day to your spouse from the list; think of it as glue to solidify your marriage. And if your spouse is off in a foreign country many miles away from you pick something from this list to finish an email.

Can we add to this list? Are there things that your spouse loves to hear? Something that you love to hear from your spouse? Share your thoughts & maybe you will help another’s relationship!
