That is very sad. Hubby and I tell one another we love each other very often throughout the day. It's the ones who are not saying it or showing it that says I'm sorry and I want a divorce.

Wow, I adore the person that started this post!

I tell hubby alot in person and he will say it more on the phone, out of the blue, that's when it tends to mean more, like wow, he does love me, that's cool.

I don't hear I love you everyday but I do SEE it. My DH does not leave or come home from work without giving me a hug and a kiss and when he comes home late from work he goes in each child's room and talks to them about their day and school.

You might have something there, Sam! Acknowledging each other at every opportunity and not hesitating to show affection and express the love you feel...? Definitely would contribute to the success of your marriage!

I think we say to to one another at least once a day. We rarely leave the house without a good bye kiss either. Maybe that is why we have been married almost 30 years...

I also question the validity of the "study".

Well, I'm glad to be one of the 40%. September 11th reminded us VERY quickly how important it is not to leave anything unsaid, especially something as easy as those three little words.

I wouldn't worry about the stat. I doubt it is a valid 'study'. I must be one of the lucky 40% though, as I do hear it daily from my dh.

Hmmm...just thought - maybe the question could be interpreted as 40% of men say it once a day. Maybe there were others who said it more than once?

I think 'I love you' is vital. I personally hear it multiple times as well as say it to my DH. But I think just as important is to look into each others eyes
and truly see it there is important also - it just takes a moment. Surely we all deserve that.

Thanks for sharing. Everyday? Not necessary. I think you stop really hearing & appreciating the words when "I Love You" is said repeatedly. A surprise "I Love You" weekly keeps the meaning real & heartfelt. emoticon emoticon

We say it multiple times to each other as well, and sometimes we make people around us sick! LOL But we have fun, we love each other and we show it. Good Stuff!

40%??? That's it? Wow. I hear it multiple times a day and every time talk on the phone.

I do as well from my hubby. Some days we do get so wrapped up in the everyday things of our kids that we do every once in a while forget. Lives are just so much more busier than they used to be.

Every single day I hear "I love you," and I couldn't imagine my life without it...

and every day he hears it, too...

I was listening to the radio this morning at work and that was the trivia question. The first answer was I'm sorry , the second answer was "I want a divorce" and the 3rd answer was "I love you". I love you was the correct answer. It amazes me that 60% of men don't tell their spouse on a daily basis that they love them. I have been with my wife for 12 years and their hasn't been a day that I haven't told her that I loved her. Anybody got any thoughts on this besides me???
