1. I want to surprise my husband more often -- in and out of the bedroom. --iVillager Lfry

2. I will get rid of the TV in the bedroom (or at least not watch when we're both in bed). --iVillager Mon1

5. I will institute a kiss goodnight. --iVillager Monique

6. I will learn to kiss my husband before I kiss my cat when I walk in the door. --iVillager swack99

7. Try to think more about him and less about me. --iVillager Jenny

8. Be honest with my fiance. Instead of moping around the house when I am angry or sad and stating a rude "nothing" when he asks what is up, I will tell him how I am feeling. I always end up telling him anyway, but he has to drag it out of me. It's ridiculous. --iVillager snorkeldude

10. Start loving myself, faults and all. --iVillager wildflower73
