You don’t need to marry a guy just so you can post pictures of your huge diamond ring on Instagram and Facebook. If you’re going to tie the knot, he needs to be someone who who will make you feel special not just on your wedding day, but every single day of your lives.

  1. You should say how you feel.You shouldn’t wait until it’s time to give your wedding vows to tell each other how you feel. You should say mushy things on the daily. Keep the romance alive.
  2. Boring days should feel special, too.If you’re with the right person, then a simple trip to the supermarket could end up being the highlight of your week. It doesn’t matter where you are. All that matters is the company that you keep.
  3. Love him for him.You shouldn’t have to see him in an elegant suit in order to find him attractive. You should love him just as much when he’s wearing his wife beater and his sneakers are tracking mud all over the carpet. No matter what he looks like, he’s still the same man.
  4. The money shouldn’t make you love him more. Don’t get carried away by the fancy dress, the expensive ring, and the big party. Loving attention and loving him are two separate things. If you really care about him, you’ll be just as happy when he hands you an ice cream cone as when he hands you a wedding ring.
  5. Sex shouldn’t be a rarity.You don’t have to have sex every single night, but you should make a point to make each other feel sexy. Try doing it in a new location or at a new time of day. Do whatever it takes to feel like you’re on your honeymoon again.
  6. Be affectionate every single day. Hold his hand at the mall. Kiss him while everyone is watching. Be as affectionate as you would be on your wedding day.
  7. You shouldn’t need an audience to appreciate him. You don’t want to be the couple who needs to post pictures of their love on Instagram and stand up in front of hundreds of guests in order to feel like a happy couple. You can be just as happy at home in your pajamas, you know.
  8. You don’t need an event to celebrate your love.You shouldn’t wait until your wedding day, anniversary, or Valentine’s Day to show each other how much you care. It should be a daily occurrence. Give out “I love you’s” as much as you tell each other to stop hogging the covers.
  9. Find more reasons to have fun.Turn on your iPod and dance around in the living room together. Set up a candlelit dinner and drink champagne together. Do whatever it is that you two love to do.
  10. A wedding is only one day. Don’t get married, just so you can have one exciting day. The wedding only lasts a few hours and the honeymoon only lasts a few days. That’s why you have to find someone that makes you feel just as special in your pajamas and acne cream as you do in your wedding gown.
