Most guys think they have to shower us with gifts or an evening out to show us how much they care. But, really, it's the ordinary things they do that melt our hearts.
Take, for instance, Brie Graves Gowen's husband. She's a busy ICU nurse and a mom of three, with another baby on the way.

One morning she woke up from a deep sleep to find the side of the bed where her husband normally sleeps was tidy. As she wrote on her blog, that told her two things: "One, I really had slept like a rock. And two, my husband had not come to bed at all last night.”
She walked out to the living room and saw why: There was her husband, asleep on the floor with two of the girls surrounding him and one daughter sprawled out on his chest. The expectant mom suddenly realized he'd thrown a slumber party for their daughters to make sure she got a good night's rest. Not only that, but the day before he'd filled the car with gas so she'd be able to get to work. She was beyond grateful.
The secret to their marriage, as Gowen told IJLift: “My husband and I work to communicate on all issues, make time together alone, without the children, and are quick to praise the other spouse’s efforts."
Sounds good to us!
