Are you still thoughtful of your wife/husband/partner?

April 16, 2010 11:14am CST
Couples have the tendency to be not thoughtful anymore of their spouses/partners after long years of being together. You know, just a simple thought while at work, or doing some errands, like when just starting as sweetie bfs/gfs, that they missed each other right away, and make a simple text or call. How about you now? Did you just call your spouse or partner? Did you think about her/him while you're eating out earlier on without her/him? Did you wish that she/he is here with you sharing moments? or you just get yourself busy to pass the time without her/him, anyway when you come back home, you'll see her/him?

I try to still be thoughtful of my husband. If I'm grocery shopping or something without him I usually pick him something he likes, like a favorite candy bar or something. When I can i'll send him a text or something to say hello. It's hard though because things get busy. Plus he doesn't do the same for me. He doesn't often think of me or our kids when he is out. So it hurts our feelings.

hey ravinskye! Even if your hubby doesn't do the same, it doesn't mean, you and your kids are not in his mind when he's out and busy. As always husbands find inspiration in their family. Same with the wife. As soon as he gets home just make things nice and cool for him. Give him all the hospitality and comfort that he will need. This way he will always look forward to going home and be with you and your kids. I've been married for 18 years now. My husband and I are still best friends, a little bit less on the lover side but we are always happy to be at home and be together after a hectic and busy day. We may not be as thoughtful as we are during our early honeymoon years but when we are together we still feel the excitement and the fun when we are together. I am still confident that even if my hubby can not make a call or a text message within the day, he will still be available at anytime if I truly need him. It works the same way with me as I am also working and with a hectic schedule. Thoughtfulness is already a "given" to married couples. Just like me, I do everything, every task at the office, yet at the back of my mind is my family...the things that I have to do for them, their condition/welfare, etc.

Since my wife and I have a lot in our hands right now, we feel very inspired and driven to do the things we both need to do to lighten the burden we are carrying. We are each other's inspiration. I feel inspired to work whenever I think about her and how close we are to achieving our goal. We both know that we both need to lead our own professional lives, but it doesn't mean that we are not one in one goal. Due to our schedule, a simple text message would do. A nice meal perhaps. And during offs/rest days we just stay at home, cuddle each other and watch DVDS all day. =)
