Why Make Him Feel Special

Often times, in the society we live in, it is thought that woman are meant to be spoiled. Here is the issue with that, if you look back in history or even at a relationship like my Great Grandparents {RIP Grena, and her husband is still residing in VT at the age of 98}. They were married nearly 75 years, if memory serves me right, before Grena {my Great Gram} passed. I watched them in their relationship over the years. I listened to stories from my Grena in her love for her husband. Love for them wasn’t what we try to make it today.

I believe my Great Grampa felt special because each had a unique role in the relationship. While he worked on the farm to provide and gave an allowance to my Grena, and she took care of the home and children. Grena would do things to make him feel special such as cooking a warm meal, tending to their children and being the woman of the home. This relationship made her happy. I truly believe they had their issues and hardships but what happened to keep them united for nearly 75? Perhaps … The undying commitment that love is not an emotion, but rather a commitment to another human being.

I firmly believe that you should make your partner feel special. Do so any way you can. Don’t do things just to get things in return. True love and long-term relationships are built upon an undying desire to always make each other feel as if you matter and that you are working towards something larger than yourself – a future of growing old together.
