What is National Spouses Day?

It’s you two against the world. You’re in it together, to the very end, and you’ll take any opportunity to celebrate that, like National Spouses Day. This is a day to have fun with your spouse and enjoy all those reasons you got hitched.

Now, birthdays and anniversaries are important too, but National Spouses Day takes a different approach. It’s not about getting each other gifts or landing at a ritzy restaurant. Here is a day to devote time to one another, to remember old inside jokes, to talk about why you married each other.

Americans are busy people, and too many important things get lost in the frenzy of daily life. National Spouses Day is the ideal chance to redirect your focus and set time aside to celebrate each other.

  • Write your spouse a letter or a card. Express why you are still glad you got married. If your reasons have changed over the years, explain how. Be specific and thoughtful.
