Popping the question, getting married, buying a house together, having a child — these are all huge, blissful memories over the course of a marriage. But there are also many small, seemingly insignificant moments in your relationship that add up to a spectacular married life.
1. Holding hands in the car
Every married couple knows that hands softly intertwined over the armrest is the best way to cruise down the highway.
2. Going on spur-decision dessert runs
“Hey honey, wanna go get some dessert?” are probably my favorite words in the entire world.
3. Cooking dinner together
Our meals might not always turn out like the picture in the recipe, but we have a blast just chopping and sauteing vegetables together.
4. Being each other’s best travel buddy
Don’t get me wrong- premarriage traveling with family and friends was great, but there’s no better travel buddy than your sweetheart. They make trips and vacations SO much better.
5. Discovering new restaurants together
One of our favorite date nights is exploring our downtown area in search of little restaurants we’ve never heard of. Most of the time the food is beyond amazing and our time together is even better.
6. Getting the best text messages
Ranging from sexy to sweet to just plain weird, texts from your sweetheart always brighten things in the middle of your busy day
7. Catching on to each others’ hobbies
Before marriage, my husband had as much interest in reading for fun as he did in eating cauliflower. But my bookworm passions rubbed off on him, and he’s grown my interest in outdoor activities.
8. Laughing at stupid things together
Whether it’s an inside joke, passing gas or a funny cat video you just found, a big part of marriage is just laughing at the stupid things together.
9. Wasting time together
If you think about it, time wasted together having fun isn’t wasted time at all.
10. Getting surprise back rubs
