National Spouses Day, which is an unofficial holiday, is marked annually on Jan. 26. This day gives couples a chance to celebrate their partner and show their better halves they are indeed appreciated.

Though this day was meant initially for married couples, it can also be celebrated by people who are in committed relationships. Express your love for your partner and show gratitude for their immense support and contribution in your life.
