K.I.S.S Rule (Keep It Serving,Silly)! There are everyday things where you could rise to occasion by helping take the load off of your spouse. Nothing tells your wife you love her more than doing the laundry, rubbing her feet, making her dinner, or putting the kids to bed while she relaxes.

Finally the one rule that isn't on the list but should always be practiced, Love your spouse everyday not just on Valentine's Day.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
