11 Small Things You Can Do in a Marriage That Make a Big Difference

by Kelsey Borresen, Weddings Editor, The Huffington Post

Marriages are often thought of and celebrated in milestones -- weddings, babies and new houses, to name a few. But it's really the small, everyday moments of love, support and kindness between two people that define a lasting partnership.

We recently asked HuffPost readers to share the little, unexpected tips and tricks that make a big difference in their relationships. Find out what they had to say below: 

1. A good, long hug makes all the difference.
"At least once a day, especially after work, we just stand and give each other a long hug. No words or kissing or moving. I stand with my arms up and he stands with his arms out, then we fall into our hug. It's a nice quiet moment in which we can decompress with each other." - Michelle Gold

2. Go out of your way to do something silly and sweet to make your partner smile. 
"I hide things like his favorite snacks or a reminder of something fun we did recently in his shoes, pockets or cup holders in his car with little notes full of stupid puns to make him laugh." - Lacey Marie
