Love In Small Ways

Post by cherry31 » Mon Jun 07, 2010 10:33 am

I've dated my husband for 9 years & married for another 4 years. So, we've somehow gotten into the very comfortable zone & needless to say, the in love feeling I once felt is gone. There is no doubt I love him. But being a romantic, I wanna feel the heady rush during the honeymoon phase. I wanna recapture the feelings when we started dating.

Hence, I've created a blog to remind myself to fall in love with the same person again and again.

Ideally, we want to feel in love with our partner throughout the marriage. As marriage matured along the way and years, you don’t feel in love with your partner anymore. Love is not gone, you will continue loving your partner but not in love, because marriage goes through phases to sustain and strengthen the foundation both of you had built from the beginning. I don’t like honeymoon phase, because it’s honeymoon phase where everything is sweet and there’s no tomorrow. I want to see and know the road ahead of us will be smooth or not with his pledge on the altar minutes ago because I want my tomorrow EVERYDAY. In love?? Nah, my hub and I passed that phase. I love my hub very much, but I’m not in love with him. I’m in love with our child.

How to always feel the heady rush? Very difficult, I feel.

But we need to try.

Also, different feelings during different stages of marriage.

Once you have kids, a lot of time & attention is focussed on the children. Sometimes, the couple may feel neglected, especially the male.

Love is something that everybody can relate to. And Love comes in ways that we can easily overlook in our daily lives. Here's an illustration of Love Is In Small Things:

When I think of love I think of trust-based relationships. However, judging from the number of mobile spyware to catch a cheating spouse I found at tryspyapp.com I doubt that there is any trust left in our society.

Give more hugs! Studies show hugs release oxytocin that reduces stress, relieves pain, eases anxiety and boosts your immune system. This is a simple, free action we can take every day to bring more love and wellness to our partner.

Trust is earned so if a cheating spouse is caught, definitely trust will be broken and it will be hard for you to trust again. Sometimes we don't need these mobile spyware, sometimes it just takes some guts when you feel your spouse is cheating on you.

Doing small things that can make your husband/wife happy is one way of showing love.. we never know that small thing is already a big deal for them!
