When my husband, Jason, and I were on our honeymoon, we kept running into a sweet older couple at the beach, in line, on tours. The woman took to giving me marriage tips each time we saw each other. Hold his hand. Be nice to his mom. Have lots of sex.

On our last night, I wondered if we'd see each other again when she appeared behind me. She put her arm around my shoulders and said, “Keep talking to each other.”

At the time we were so young and so carefree and so focused on each other, I couldn't imagine not keeping the conversation going. But it happens, doesn't it? Between work and kids and pets, some days I feel like all we do is give each other a high-5 on our way out the door.

I asked seven women what they make sure to say to their husbands every single day. They showed me that with a little heart and humor, you really can make sure to keep talking to each other just like the honeymoon lady told me to.

I love these women's “everyday words” a ridiculous amount and know that you will, too.
