Loving Things To Say To Your Husband Every Day

Looking for loving things to say to your husband? I got you covered!

There’s a new trend among married folks that I agree with completely.

Instead of the “ol’ ball and chain” stereotype that used to define matrimony, men and women are treating marriage like a gift (because it is), and their spouses like a prize (because they are).

Nowadays, wives aren’t belittling their husbands for laughs.

I mean, some may try, but if they’re lucky, a sistergirl pulls them to the side real quick and sets them real straight.

Sitcoms showing the long-suffering wife tolerating their bumbling husbands can sometimes trick women into thinking that disrespect is funny, and, that men are just species that you can’t live with and you can’t live without.

We live in the real world, though.

While one of those television husband’s reaction to snark and eye-rolling might be flowers and trying harder, your man probably won’t respond in the same way.

Read how negative words and attitudes almost caused me to NOT get married!

Now, I know none of you would dare treat your husband with anything less than total respect.

I also know that despite the general feeling of reverence that you have for your man, life might prevent you from actually SAYING the things to let him know how much you care about him.

As a newlywed, this is all new to me, too. I’ve never been big on expressing my feelings through words.

My husband, on the other hand, he needs that to feel connected.

So, I’ve been working to give him that.

Once I started making the effort, because Terrence is pretty darn exceptional, it’s actually not that difficult.

Loving things to say to your husband every day

1. I love you.

3. Have a good day.

4. How are you feeling?

5. I’m proud of you.

6. You look great.

7. I appreciate you.

8. You turn me on.

9. How was your day?

10. Do you need anything from me?

Of course, the way that you say these things to your man don’t have to be exact.

This list of loving things to say to your husband is just a place to start.  

For example, last week Terrence was doing a new eating plan and he stuck to it the entire week.

Even though it meant that he had to miss out on his favorite food at a work outing, and he had to do a little bit more prep work, he made it through the end of the week and I was proud of him.

Instead of keeping it in, I told him. “It’s been 5 days and you’ve done so good with your diet! That’s really fantastic that you’ve been able to keep up with things. I’m really proud of you! Is it getting easier? How do you feel?”

Easy, right?

Ten simple phrases every single day.

There’s 24 hours in the day, so that shouldn’t be a problem at all.

Just get ready, though.

Committing to affirming your husband every single day sows into your relationship, and you’ll reap the benefits.

I feel like we’re communicating really clearly with each other because we’re both making an effort to acknowledge and recognize what each other is doing each day.

The payoff for this tiny deposit into our relationship is incredible.

Great Post sometimes forget to stroke my man’s ego or let him know that I’m just checking in on him, but I need to do it more often for sure. Thank you for the reminder!

Great post! I have a handful of friends who are always complaining about their husbands to the point where I don't think they like them at all and wonder why they married the men. And I do understand -- you'll never know what goes on in a marriage, and it is hard to compromise. Some of the situations do seem insurmountable. However, I have to say that I really try to appreciate my husband who has given so much and taken little. Yes, he can frustrate me, but I treasure him and try to let him know. I'm wondering if this is because my parents were not able to have a long marriage -- my father passed away when I was small. It's nice to hear about good, happy marriages!

Thank you! I just don't get praying for a husband, waiting for a husband, and then dogging him out! Thank you so much for reading and commenting!

I need this list. My husband and I are often like 2 ships passing in the night given our schedules. There are days (sadly) when we don't see each other in an awake state. But when I do set eyes on him, I need to tell him these things AND text him.
