The unofficial holiday encourages people to let their spouses know how much they are loved, respected, and appreciated.

Not Only Marriage

While the term spouse is traditionally used to refer to individual bound by law through marriage, these days it can be used to refer to people who may be in a common-law marriage, domestic partnership, or civil union.

The holiday is also known as National Spouse's Day in the United States.

How to Celebrate?

  • While gifts are always nice, the best and the most meaningful gift is the gift of time. Spend some quality time with your partner. Maybe take the day off and surprise them with a picnic.
  • Do their errands and chores for them.
  • Make their favorite foods and treats.
  • Whatever you do, make sure you tell them that you appreciate everything they do for you.
