Give each other a quick foot-massage before bed. It may seem awkward at first but gradually you’ll both start enjoying the pampering session. It could become your moment of relaxation every day, and who knows, things could get further steamy
During the day, send your partner a random, cute love message. Something as simple as “Thinking of you”, “Missing your touch”, “Reminiscing our trip to Goa” would also count. Trust me, it will light up their day and yours as well!
Say… yes, say “I love you”. Actions may be louder than words, but it makes a hell lot of difference if you express your feelings verbally. Try it and notice the difference.

Take a minute to cuddle your partner every morning before stepping out of bed, or before you leave for work. Simply holding each other silently is enough therapy to get rid of all the stress and make you feel much closer to your partner.
Take a walk every evening after coming back from work. Happy couples usually talk a lot more than others. Tell each other how your day was; discuss your concerns, your future, and anything that you want to get off of your chest. Spending quality time together always makes a difference.
Show gratitude to each other for the smallest things. If it was your turn to get up early to take milk, and you somehow forgot to do it but realize that your wife has already done the needful, don’t take her for granted. Walk up to her and give her a hug, thank her for doing it and promise to do your job the next time.
Be forgiving! This is the most important aspect in any relationship and pretty much the very foundation on which you must build your relationship. Learn to forgive minor slip-ups. Don’t think of them as slights and a reason to get back at them. If he forgets to pay the electricity bill, remind him politely and check if it can be done online. If she is too tired to do the laundry, don’t fret; throw it in the machine yourself, it hardly takes 5 minutes.
Be intimate, and then a bit more intimate. Happy couples share a healthy sex life. So get in mood today (or every day!) as much and as often as you want.

Be happy genuinely – and voice it out. Tell your partner how happy they make you. Make them feel special even for doing the little things. Even though it may sound artificial at first, you’ll soon notice that when you don’t do it you feel incomplete. Ask yourself if you’re really happy and you’ll feel it in your gut.
Inculcate these habits in your daily life starting today, and strengthen the bond with your partner. And as I said before, it is indeed the little things that matter!
