20 Ways To Say "I LOVE YOU" To Your Spouse Without Saying A Word

“Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do…
but how much love we put in that action.” 
–Mother Teresa

1. Listen without interrupting or analyzing

2. Send them texts and/or emails telling them how much you appreciate them

3.  Leave small surprises (such as their favorite candy) around the house or in their car 

4. Laugh at their jokes (funny or not)

5. Make them their favorite meal or take them out to their favorite restaurant

6. Give them a gift “just because”

7. Write them a letter outlining all the things you adore about them

8. Kiss them goodbye

9. Greet them with a hug when they come home

10. Leave encouraging notes on the bathroom mirror with a dry erase marker 
     (This is a personal favorite of mine J)

11. Give them a message after a rough day

12. Bring them breakfast in bed

13. Rent their favorite movie and watching it with them (even if you think it is boring)

14. Wink at them from across the dinner table

15. Hold hands while walking together

16. Notice their strengths, overlook their weaknesses 
     (You may be surprised at how many strengths you typically take for granted)

17. Give them space when they need it

18. Resist the urge to criticize (and if you MUST criticize make sure it is not in the presence of others)

19. Make an effort to appreciate their hobbies and interests

20. Turn off your phone when you are spending time together

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
I Corinthians 13:4-7

  1. Great list. Love is an action word. Words alone do not mean much without the actions, time and effort behind them. Love #18 and 19.
