You’re secure in your belief that, for your husband, you will always be The One, but do you sometimes—at the back of your mind—wonder if the passionate love will last forever?
Sure, we all know that kilig fades. But long and lasting love—the comfortable, enduring kind—is something all couples strive to achieve and keep burning.
You don’t have to worry about your hubby’s devotion if you know how to be attentive to the gestures of love he shows you daily.
Here are 4 of these tell-tale gestures, as shared by mom blogger Gina Holt to FamilyShare:
1. He still sees you the same way
It doesn’t matter if you think you’re no longer attractive just because you’ve piled on the pounds, a husband who loves you will still see you as beautiful despite your perceived insecurities. You don’t have to get all dolled up for him to appreciate your beauty or compliment you. No matter what changes life may bring, he will still look at you the same way because he will always see the girl he fell in love with, even when you’re both old and grey.
2. He shows appreciation through the little things
A hubby who’ll always be in love will notice and appreciate the little things, paying attention to your needs, and is selfless enough to share.
He saves you the last slice of pizza. He makes sure you always have a snug blanket over you as you sleep. He even lets you have the remote control. He makes an effort to make you smile, as if he was still courting you or winning you over. The ligaw phase doesn’t end because he no longer is doing it to pursue you, but to keep you happy. The best relationships take effort but feel effortless.
3. He truly believes in you
A husband who’ll be in love with you forever will always be proud to have you as his partner. He celebrates your talents and skills and roots for you when you have trouble believing in yourself.
He encourages you to nurture your creativity and knowledge. Conversations about your passions is something he’s invested in because what’s important to you is essential to him, too.
A hubby who is consistently proud of you will often seek your opinion and values what you have to say when it comes to decision making.
4. He genuinely likes hanging out with you
A husband who looks forward to spending quality time with you is someone whose love will endure. He is genuinely present, not distracted by gadgets, when you go out on dates. He is enthusiastic about trying new adventures or seeing new places with you. Even if it’s simply staying at home, binge-watching your favorite shows in pajamas, a husband who will always have eyes for you alone will make you feel like there’s truly no place he’d rather be.
No two loves are the same and what may be tell-tale signs for some couples, may not be true for some.
