One of the absolute best things about being married is the whole getting to say and hear “I love you” all the time. Seriously, it is right up there with the whole getting sex all the time thing. There’s something special about those three little words. Something that makes you feel better, makes the world easier to handle, and can make difficult times a little better.
I love that I have no doubt that The Boy loves me. He tells me daily. Every morning before he goes to work, he kisses me and tells me. Every text or phone call ends with “I love you”. And every night when I kiss him good night – yep, he tells me.
And I’m not just talking about someone actually saying the words, “I love you” – I’m talking about the little things you or they do to make you understand how they love you. Maybe it’s always taking the aisle seat
so you can have the window. Or maybe they cleaned up all your puke when you had the flu and couldn’t make it to the bathroom in time. Maybe it’s making sure the snow is scraped off your car and the windows are defrosted. Or maybe it’s just always remembering that you like your Quarter Pounder without ketchup or onions.
How do you know your partner loves you?
