Let’s face it, we’re all busy people. Between work and kids and driving around, there sometimes leaves little time for our partner. That’s when we see the troubled times where the two once-madly-in-love partners begin to feel more like roommates than lovers. No one wants that to happen and like anything, our partnership needs our time, attention and, love.
I, myself am not a “lovey” person. I don’t naturally say the words all the time and lately, I have been kind of off the extra cuddle attention. I have a bit of an excuse being in the first trimester of pregnancy and sick all the time, but truth is, that extra strain on me puts an extra strain on my marriage.
Even though I am busy, preoccupied with my hard-to-manage pregnancy symptoms and still not really comfortable with saying those three words (you know, “I love you”), there are ways I can make sure my partner knows how I feel. They say that actions speak louder than words and I am true believer in that statement. When it comes to showing our partner love, that statement is true as well because there are some pretty obvious ways to show you love your partner without necessarily saying it every day.
