I say thank you all the time. And I never ever joke about or disparage him in groups.
Drives me nuts when people rattle off their SOs shortcomings as a comedy routine in a social setting.

I just saw someone do this last weekend. So awkward and just plain mean

She’s back in the office, so I’ve done my best to play house-husband. I buy fresh flowers for our house every two weeks, make sure the house is tidy when she comes home, plan / cook at least one of her favorite dinners per week, and make sure to give her 🐱 a lot of 👅 whenever we...

Always make coffee for them in the morning and tidy up the kitchen if it needs cleaning, thankfully I usually do that the night before :)

I find out when she’s coming home sometimes and take the dog for a walk on the street, so she can see us running alongside her on the drive home

Not really in tune with your question, but every morning I “kiss attack” my SO. For the laymen, this is when I roll over see that she’s slowly waking up and kiss her all over her face/lips. Usually this is coupled with a bear hug. 👄 🐻 🥰

Pretty vanilla- but a classic for a reason: I cook nice meals for him, with stuff he likes or has brought up recently. I did it a 3 course dinner last week that was particularly well received.

Since my SO is a healthcare provider and between COVID and general ICU stress, if we are both off on a given weekend I let them sleep in and wake up with the kiddos. If we both work during a given weekday I try to have the house in one piece and kiddos asleep before they get home since that’s always super late, and at that point they are so worn out that some downtime is good. None of this is explicitly acknowledged by them, but I don’t do it for the praise, just do it to be a good partner.

I tell my husband every day that I love him and that I'm so grateful to have him in my life. I know this means a lot to him because his family growing up was really mean and never said anything nice. I've worked from home for years and he is a house husband, and he goes above and beyond to make things as nice as possible for both of us, which I really appreciate.
