Always make her feel loved.
Make her feel loved by telling her how much you love her. Be sweet and loving when talking to her. Everyday, do simple thing that will make her feel loved. For example, try different ways to say good morning to her. Serve her whenever you can. Send her a love message in a random day with no particular reason and just because you remembered her and how amazing she is.

Compliment her in every small thing she does. This will let her know that you notice the small things and changes in her appearance because you pay her close attention. When she does something and she isn’t proud of the outcome, praise her for trying and for doing her best. It will boost her confidence.
Chores are not solely for the wife to do. She isn’t a housemaid or a housekeeper so she shouldn’t be the only one doing the chores. Help her clean, do the dishes, wash the laundry, walk the dog, etc. Help her with the house tasks. Whenever you can, cook for her. Tidy up the room; don’t leave all tasks to her. Make her feel that both of you have a fair share of house work, regardless of who is working for the family.
Take her out on a date.
Being married does not mean you should stop going on dates. As a married pair, you should always have dates and alone time together. Your time may not be as flexible as before because of your job and other responsibilities but try to at least schedule a date to take her out every once a week or more. This will make her feel special as if the love is new. You can even go back to the places you both used to go and reminisce your moments together in those places. This will help strengthen your bond and marriage.
Let her know she is beautiful.
Say it to her while looking into her eyes. Say it sincerely and lovingly, as if you have never seen anyone else as beautiful as her. Especially in old age, letting her know she has remained beautiful throughout the years will make her feel confident and beautiful inside and outside.
Take care of her.
When she is sick, cook for her. Always stay by her side when she needs it. Spend quality time with her and always make the effort everyday to do simple caring gestures. When she has problems at work, talk to her and ease her stress and worries. Be there and open your arms, give her a hug, and kiss her. There are things that never go old despite the years. Your love is one of them.
Surprise her with gifts.
It does not have to be expensive or big as long as it made you think of her. Give her gifts that will make her happy. No special occasion is needed.

Through the gifts you give, no matter how simple they are, they will always remind her of you wherever you may be.
Give her security.
Assure her that everything is going to be alright. Protect her from the people who bring her down. Let her know that you are always beside her to support her in every step of the way. Whatever fight she is on is also yours to fight. Give her emotional security that she is the one and only, and that your love for her is stronger than anything else. Give her security and send her messages with I miss you lines to let her know that she is always on your mind.
Never ever cheat and break her trust. Fulfil everything that you have promised her before you even got married. Love her and only her, if you are in a monogamous relationship. Be honest and open to each other. Tell her your worries and insecurities. In that, she will also trust you of her worries and insecurities. Trust is the foundation of a relationship and once it’s broken, it is really hard to be restored.
Let her do what she loves.
Let her know and feel that your marriage is never a trap to stop her from doing what she dreams and hopes to accomplish. Instead, let her know that the marriage and you are the support system she can count on in fulfilling her dreams. Do not dictate what she wants in life. If it’s something you disagree, communicate with her properly. Explain to her your point of view, and when she explains hers, make sure to listen and understand her point.
Communicate with her.
Communication is the key, especially when the married couples are very busy with their respective jobs. Always communicate your worries, your feelings, and your thoughts to your wife. Even though you are always together every day, it doesn’t do much if you don’t communicate well. Be open about what you think. Don’t expect your wife to know everything without you telling her. You are a married couple, not a mind-reading duo. Many marriages fall apart because of certain expectations that each should automatically understand the other.
Make her your priority.
Now that you are married, everything that you do is towards the end goal of prioritizing her. You work because her good future is your priority. You married her because she is your priority. You spend time with her because she is your priority. All these things are mainly because you have acknowledged that she is now the priority of your life. It is your priority to make her happy, loved, and valued, and she should be able to feel it.
Don’t hurt her in any way. Verbally, physically, or emotionally, don’t ever dare hurt her. Give her the best treatment she deserves because she is the amazing woman you married. Respect her. Learn to listen to her and treat her words, thoughts, and feelings seriously, as if it’s a life-and-death matter to you. At the end of the day, when everything else fails, the only thing you should always remember is to treat her right.
Make decisions with her.
You are a team, so the decision-making should be shared by the both of you. There is no longer private life in marriage. All aspects of your life, she is already a part of. Value and respect her opinions. Listen to her thoughts and view her opinions in equal importance as yours.
Respect her family.
Treat the important people in her life with respect. The people she considers important in her life are also important in your life, too. Treat them well and respect them as if they are your own blood-related family. In this way, you can show ow much your wife means to you that you extend your love to her family. You can also win the trust and love of her family by putting them at ease that she is indeed in the right, caring, and loving hands. Some people actually find it difficult to get along with the family of their partners, but once you take the first step in proving yourself worthy, you are going to be treated like a family in no time.
Marriage requires a lot of effort to work and last. It’s not always that love and romance will always be in the marriage, but commitment will always be the lasting factor. Show your commitment to your wife by doing the things included in the list. In the end, what’s important is to know what works well and best for your wife.
