I met the love of my life at 17, while both of us were working at Burger King. She hated me at first — thought I was an arrogant know-it-all. Over the course of a few months, we formed a friendship. After that, we started dating. After we'd dated for a month, I asked her to marry me. We were married five months after meeting. And we've now been married for sixteen years.
We have had good times, but no marriage is good all the time — we even separated for six months at one point. Relationship stress always occurs for a variety of reasons, but I eventually identified one major source of ours: I didn't follow through on my commitments.
It’s not enough to tell someone you love them. The things you do speak volumes. That is how you communicate with your partner how you feel about them. These are twelve of the most powerful ways I know to show my wife how much I love her.
