Create a special holiday once a week. Together for three years, Matthew and Ashley have kept their love alive, despite conflicting work schedules, by designating Mondays as their special “couple holiday.” In Matthew and Ashley’s case, Ashley began the tradition with what she calls “Matthew Monday.” On this day, Ashley pampers her husband by doing all sorts of chores, sending him love notes, corny jokes, and thanking him for the things he does for her. Matthew, in turn, uses the day to help Ashley out around the house.
If the spark has gone out of your relationship, take a lesson from these happy couples. Using their rituals as inspiration, create your own special way to celebrate each other.
