How often do you say "I love you" to your husband?

Fellow wives, how often do you say "I love you" to your husband? Do you think you say it often enough? Does it affect your relationship with him? I think I say "I love you" to my hubby at least 15 times a day. I just blurt it out whenever I feel like saying it. I like saying it because I feel like I don't say it enough. It's not that me or my hubby are insecure of each other's love, we just like expressing our love for each other.

There is absolutely no limits to it.I say it when he is in bad times and when he is happy also.Actually there is no any timing to it.I say it whenever i feel like saying.Because i really love him all the time,in whatever he does, says, reacts, just anything.It comes out of me automatically.When he is at work i miss him then too.I sometimes call him up and say that i miss him and love him.But, but, but, please dont think that i am possessive about him.It is just an expression.

I find it hard to say it in words. I prefer to say it by other means by preparing food when I arrive home before her. By washing the floor and doing other house chores.

i say "i love you" to my husband as often as i want and he does the same. we also say "i love you" to the kids and they respond the same way towards us. we just make sure that when we say it, we really mean it. i think we say "i love you" even more when we have problems. while we have many ways to show our love for each other, we emphasize how we feel by saying it out loud.

No..its exactly opposite in our case, we hardly say it to each other but know very well that we do..it maybe some other way expressed many times but i dont know exactly when i said him the wrods 'I love You', and we are going good with each other...no dose required, your dose is too high i think......but depends, if the person to whom u say likes it then there is nothing extra...isn't it ?

my hubby actually likes it. i guess we're just both very expressive. we also do other ways to show our love for each other, not just saying "I love you"

I say it at least once a day, sometimes more. But I make sure I hug and touch him A LOT during the day. I just LOVE hugging him. Plus his primary love languages are quality time AND touch. That's why I make sure I touch him a lot (hug, caress)...to make him feel loved. :-)))) And I also make sure that every now and then I say, "You're the best for me". :-D

My husband and I sound alot like you. We say it to one another many, many times each day. I think there is nothing better than hearing that you are loved by someone, especially when you love that person just as much. I say it to my children throughout the day as well and they in turn say it to us. Hopefully they will grow to be compassionate and loving people.

My husband and I usually tell each other how we feel on a regular basis. I have been with him for about eight years now and married for four. I do enjoy being a married woman and I love my husband very much. I probably tell him that I love him at least once or twice a day. I also believe that communication is key in a relationship to keep things going smoothly. Have a great day and thanks for the post today.

we got this idea from the movie clerks when they were playing hockey on the roof.

I try to say it at least once a day. We tell our kids a lot, but to each other not so much. We really only say it when we leave each other. That's pretty good I think. It doesn't really effect our relation ship. We know that we love each other. We show each other that we love each other more, through public desplays of affection. For example, we cuddle a lot (even with the kids).

My husband calls from work quite often and we both always end the call with 'i love you'. We say it in the morning, during the day and always before we go to sleep at night.

I don't feel that I say I love you to my husband as often as I should, but I do say it to him. I find that I say it to him while we're lying in the bed or when I think of just how good of a man/husband he is to me. Sometimes, although I do love him, I say it to make him feel good as well. He's a little more affectionate than I am, so he appreciates it when I show him any kind of attention. In reading this topic, I think I'll text him to let him know that I love him!

My husband and I exchange I love yous all the time. I grew up with parents who are not so emotionally expressive and even though I know that they love each other and that they love me, it would be nice to hear them say it every now and then. Thus, I vowed that I will always say I love you to my husband and my children when I have my family someday. And now that I'm married to wonderful guy and I have a lovely daughter, I never forget to say I love you to them whenever I get the chance or whenever I just feel like saying it.

We usually say it every day just about. Yesterday, I was sitting in the couch eating, and he just blurted it out. I think that maybe he just felt some pity for me because I'm pregnant, and I was stuffing my face. lol. We always kiss before he goes off to work. I do it because I know I'll miss him, and because I know nothing in this life is really guaranteed.

I say I love you to my hubby every day, every time we get off the phone, every time one of us leaves the house, and sometimes for no reason at all. I think it's important to make sure you say it, even if you have that unspoken knowledge of loving each other..sometimes, it's just nice to hear.

My husband and I say it to each other about 15 times a day also. We are a very loving family. Even the kids say it a lot and we say it to them a lot too. But, more importantly, are you showing your husband how much you love him? Men need respect and love from us as wives. They need us to show it and not just say it. They need to know that we really respect and admire them by our actions. So, how are we showing them we love them? For my husband some of the ways I show him is by showing affection (which men love of course), making him dinner, keeping the house cleaned up, not complaining when he wants to go play golf, etc. What are some things you do to show him?

Wow I must be in the wrong marriage. Im the one that says I LOVE or tells her how important she is to me. She in return just about chokes when she says I love you. Not good she very closed in that way. I thought it was because of previous marriage issues. The kids are great huggers and can easily say I love you. Any suggestions...

I think I must say I love you about 20 to 25 times daily. Sometimes I just pick up the phone to call him just to say "I love you honey". Life is short and tomorrow is promised to no one. With that in mind I want to make sure he knows without a doubt that dearly love him. I think that my relationship would definitely change if I didn't tell him as much.

I say i love you to my husband everyday (can't remember how many i love i said to him everyday). Saying the word i love you always isn't enough if you never show to him that you love him in many ways. We are both expressing our love each other. I asked him if he loves me and he replied "SOMETIMES", and i was surprise and laugh on his answer, i know what he means, he hates me when im on my moods. hahaha crazy hubby.
