Romance is a wonderful thing and possibly the first thing that gets lost between couples when they become parents. Those sleepless nights, the endless work and financial stress, the constant kids’ activities and needs … Romance gets the back burner, fast. But some spouses always find sweet ways to remind their wives how much they love them, think of them, and appreciate them. Here to melt your hearts (and make you swoon a bit, maybe), 11 lucky wives share the romantic things husbands (still) do for them, on a regular basis:

1. “My husband knows that I’m the worst in the mornings, so he gets up, every single day, before me, makes coffee and breakfast for the family, and even empties the dishwasher, to give me the time and space I need to wake up more slowly.”-- Caroline, New York

2. “We've been together over 15 years, but he keeps surprising me with flowers frequently because he knows I love them.” -- Angie, Florida

3. “My husband cooks the best dinners ever, all the time. His food is out of this world, and even though he commutes far to his office, he still insists on cooking most nights of the week -- and cleaning up too!” -- Anna, California

4. “My hubby gives me back rubs when we watch TV in the evening, and it melts all my tension of the day away.” -- Sarah, Connecticut

5. “He always says, ‘I love you’ first thing every morning when I wake up and last thing at night. Even after we’ve argued! ” -- Susan, New York

6. “My husband always encourages me to go take breaks, get massages, go out with friends, not work so hard, not stress about cleaning and our kid so much. His support and care feels romantic to me because it’s a constant reminder of how much he loves me and cares for me.” -- Felicia, New York

7. “He knows I love jewelry, so each year, on our anniversary, we go to the jeweler where we picked out our wedding rings, and he buys me something new. And I love wearing these things as reminders of our marriage.” -- Erin, New Jersey

8. “My husband writes me heartfelt, romantic notes and letters when he travels for work, on holidays, birthdays, and special occasions, and sometimes, just because. Like with a text on a random Tuesday from work. It never gets old, even after 12 years!” -- Allison, Vermont

9. “He knows how tired I am of cooking for the family and food shopping and cleaning every day, so he takes me out to dinner, and always lets me pick the place, as often as time and money allow. He makes it a real priority to give me that break that I need and relish. It’s the perfect time-out for me, and perfectly romantic at the same time.” -- Carrie, Michigan

10. "My husband makes me coffee every Saturday morning (if we don't have anywhere to be) and usually delivers it to me ... in bed!" -- Sheri, California

11. “My husband calls me at least once a day from work just to say, ‘Hi’ and ‘I love you.’” -- Alexandra, New York
