Romance & Money
Romance in February
Obviously February is Valentine's
month. But I'd like you to consider going deeper in your quest to show your
spouse how much you love him/her. Deeper than a card, flowers, candy, and
heart-covered boxer shorts.
Show that you love one another. Actions do speak louder than words. One of the
things I love most about my husband is how he shows me that he loves me. He
always holds my hand in public, or gives me a quick kiss when we're in a movie
or grocery line. Love can be a selfish thing. By that I mean we love to be
around people that make us feel good about ourselves. A sincere show of
affection at unexpected times is a tender thing. In eight years I've never gone
a day without my husband giving me a big hug. Because his actions show he loves
me, he makes me feel good about myself. There is nowhere I'd rather be.
Sincerely showing affection for your spouse fits very snuggly into your budget,
and I guarantee a good return on your investment. What do your actions tell your
Don't wait for the 14th; put little Valentine cards and notes in special places
for your spouse to find. Put a post-it that says, "Hi! I love you." inside the
toilet lid. When he lifts it up, you'll hear the laughter.
