Plus I'm sure your wife likes it as well. I know I like it when my husband complements me.

Lord help me remember that nothing is going to happen today that you and I can't handle together.

If ignorance is bliss why arenít more people happy?

And it sets such a positive tone, I'm sure!

Complimenting my wife is always a pleasure and I think all husbands should feel that way

Well said, all of you!

So much time, energy is lost when we choose to argue over the littlest things that really don't matter.

I agree. We don't expect the other to do certain chores, one of us usually does what ever needs to be done. I usually take care of the laundry because I like things wash and dried a certain way. If I don't have things folded he will help me. Who ever is last out of bed usually makes it. These are things we've never discussed it's just part of our "routine". We don't sweat the little stuff. I have friends who constantly argue with their spouses over every little thing. My husband and I actually talk to each other and share. We don't argue because we don't nit-pick at each other over the non-important things.

That is something that I hope to incorporate when my fiance and I get married. Even now, we don't let the small things bother us. It's refreshing to hear of someone else who is doing the same.

Over the years my spouse and I have appreciated the strengths in each other instead of nagging about the weaknesses our things we don't like. By taking up the slack we have gotten more done and taken alot of stress out of our marriage. Some people argue that they wouldn't put up with certain things but we all have habits annoying to the other. Instead of nagging because my husband is in a hurry in the morning and makes a small mess getting ready, I gladly wipe the counter and appreciate that he helps putting away laundry and makes the bed, which he does without being asked just because it's my least liked chore. It's not always so smooth and its taken time but it's worth it.

The possibilities always outnumber the problems.
