Husbands online have begun sharing the little things they do for their wives to keep their marriage happy and it'll make you say, "Awww, why doesn't my hubby do this?!?"

"Driving through her college town a few days ago and picked up the soup of the day from her old fave restaurant and left it in the fridge with a note. She constantly makes me surprise meals and picks up thoughtful gifts... its about the thought, the effort, not money or reward."

"When it's my turn to do the laundry, I leave random things in her pants pockets for her to find later — origami, little notes, cute drawings, jokes, whatever I can think of. I even sometimes throw in random objects I find at work or yard sales — stuff like mechanical parts, labels, toys — anything that will confuse her and put a smile on her face. There's a Lego Batman in a pair of her pants she still hasn't found."

"I have been with my wife for coming up on ten years. Sometimes we both play hookie from work and drop the kids off at the babysitter for a day together. We go look at old places we lived. Old haunts we used to hang out in. Just reminiscing the day away. Then we do something new. New place to eat or activity. Making memory's is super important. Setting aside Parenthood for a few hours and connecting with the person you love is also very important. You sometimes lose yourselves and that's ok. Just make sure to find each other again."
