About the episode
In this podcast episode hosted by Adity Kutty, Jan shared that couple rituals are something nice or something good somebody does for another without even thinking and are organic.
She also mentioned some practices to improve couples’ rituals. You can start with how your partner feels. For example, when your partner comes home tired, let them sit down and give them some hugs to make them feel better. This is important in any relationship since it builds a deeper connection.
Moreover, Jan said you should let and acknowledge what each other has, like love language and saying words of affirmation, and that is where some couples’ rituals will come from.
Couple rituals and love languages are powerful commitment tools—which can be small, daily acts—that help people establish a sense of meaning and nurture relationships.
