Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: How much should one love his spouse?


A: There is no limit as long as the love does not lead you to disobeying Allah Ta`ala, His Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and further it does not lead you to violate any person’s rights.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
