When we make New Year’s resolutions, we normally focus on losing weight, making more money, etc. But, when it comes to relationships, they don’t always get considered. If you’d like to have a stronger marriage in 2017, it could be as easy as adopting a few new habits.

Have you ever heard the saying, “It’s the little things that count”? This new year, let that be the theme of your marriage – the little things. Focus on doing the little things for your partner, so that he feels appreciated. Here are some daily habits to incorporate that will surely make your marriage stronger. When you first begin doing these things, your partner may be shocked. Just continue doing them and they will come to love you more than they did the day you both said, “I do”.

Greetings and Goodbyes
Whenever your partner leaves or returns home, make it big deal. Whether it’s a special kiss, a hug, or a shout for joy, remind them that they are important to you.

Go to Bed Together
Going to bed at the same time creates opportunity for intimacy. Even if you like to be up late, you can get back up when they fall asleep. This creates closeness.

Send Sweet Text Messages
Don’t get so wrapped up in your day that you forget your spouse. Make time during the day, to send sweet text messages. This puts you in the front of their mind and reminds them that they are loved and cared for.
