LOVE



Without kindness in your relationship, your marriage won't last. Here are some ways to check up on yourself to see how kind you are in your marriage:

• You say "yes" a lot more than "no" when your spouse asks for a favor or for help.

• You are willing to share that last piece of pie or cookie because being kind is being generous.

• You listen with your heart.

• You don't interrupt your spouse.

• You are polite and say "please" and "thank you" when speaking to your spouse.

• You don't think it is old fashioned to open a heavy door for your spouse or to share your jacket if your mate is shivering.

• You show respect for your mate.

• You let your spouse know how much he/she is appreciated.

• You don't roll your eyes when your spouse says something you disagree with or something you think is trivial or boring.

• You routinely look for the good in your spouse.

• You are helpful.

• You don't allow unkind comments to flow from your lips.

• You make sure that your teasing is fun and not hurtful.
