Love rituals are good for the soul of romantic relationships. My husband and I have established several love rituals throughout our years together. They began during our dating years. These rituals help to rekindle the love during those trying times to reminding us of how far our love has come.
One annual love ritual is returning back to the place where my husband has asked me to marry him. He asked me at a beach in Delaware. I recall that special moment in 2005. We were walking alongside the beach front and having good conversation. Then all of sudden I turned around and my husband was on one knee asking me to marry him. It was so quick that I had to ask him to say it again! Well, I only got one chance with that one. Of course, I said yes. It was a sweet moment and began our journey towards the path of becoming husband and wife in 2006.
Each year, my husband and I return back to the beach to reminisce and remember that special moment. We also have other love rituals for Valentine’s Day, Christmas and summer. What amazes me most is how quickly time moves. Sometimes, when I think on these moments, they feel like yesterday but it may have been a decade or more ago. It reminds me that life is short and to cherish our present time together with our loved ones because tomorrow isn’t promised to us.
