Fights are an almost inevitable part of many relationships. As much as ONE may assume to know his/her spouse, people are prone to changes. Thus, there is no rule against trying something creative, in terms of apologies; what's important is the sincerity of the intention.
There are THREE steps towards making the best of an apology. The first step is the expression of the apology; the second step is to make a promise towards ensuring that the negative action which caused the fight becomes extremely infrequent; the third step is to do something to make it up to the significant other.
Below are creative ways to apologise;
Favourite meal: It is no myth that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. It also WORKS for women too. Prepare his/her favourite meal. No more words are usually needed to further express the apology.
Top list: Make a list of 10 things you like most about YOUR spouse and tuck it where he/she is sure to find it.
A good long hug: Judge the mood of your spouse and just surprise him/her with a warm hug. WORKS wonders.
Romantic getaway: A very rare way to apologise. It doesn't have to be expensive. The important thing is to do something romantic together, outside your usual meeting places.
Apology note: Make it simple, short and as creatively romantic as possible.
Yummy treat: Nearly everyone likes something yummy. Try chocolate, baked treats, candy or even sweets.
Message in a bottle: Write something sweet, put in a bottle with petals and accompany with a simple gift.
The list goes on and ONE can come up with further ideas. Creativity also helps to spice up the relationship. As Nishan Panwar puts it, "Sometimes, couples have to argue, not to prove who's right or wrong, but to be reminded that their love is worth fighting for."
