Back in May of this year we posted the thoughts of Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies Magazine and her followers on what ladies that love their husbands do for their husband to concretely express that love. Not that the list was entirely bad, but much of it was silly over the top actions and filled with empty insincerity. There were things on the list that could potentially not be good for your husband or significant other over the long run.
But if you deeply love someone are you really demonstrating your love for them or exposing your own insecurities towards the relationship by following this list? What would a better list look like? You can sound off below in our comments or send NLQ your thoughts at CaluluNLQ(at)gmail(dot)com.
