In today’s society love letters are almost extinct in most relationships. Long gone are the days of waking up to find a little love note laying on your pillow. Well, in my household I am fighting to keep this ancient art alive. As you can tell, I am very good with expressing myself through the written word.
My husband did not grow in the most loving environment as a child. And being in foster care he never really got to witness what a great marriage could be like. That portrait of how a man should love a woman wasn’t painted for him. Hell, he barely felt the love that parents and relatives should have for a child.
Thus, he tends to need to be reassured that he is loved and that I am still in love with him. And what better way to do so than through a love letter. Our relationship has weathered many storms but through them all I never fell out of love with my husband. He is one of a kind.
And strive everyday to let him know it. There’s nothing I enjoy more than sitting down with nice stationery and pouring my heart out to him. In that moment I feel so uninhibited. And the rush of emotions I get from watching read why letters is indescribable.
I try to surprise him. I might leave them in his lunch bag, on the driver seat of the car, the bed, etc. I’ve even mailed him love letters. I hope that we can pass this art on to our children.
Our boys and girls need to know the proper techniques to express their love. So many of them feel they have to turn to sex and you don’t. A love letter is just as intimate. It gets right to the point.
When was the last time you wrote your spouse a love letter?
