10 Things I Say To My Wife That Make Our Marriage Great

I’ve been doing a lot of premarital counseling lately, which of course makes me think about how great my own marriage is. Why so great? I say things which help our marriage be great. The following is a sampling of what I say to my wife that contributes to the greatness:

1. “We don’t have to always do what I want. If we do what I want 90% of the time, that should be sufficient.”

2. “I want you to take a deep breath, step back and look at this body and see if you can be still be mad at me.”

3. “This tastes waaaaaayyy better than what you tried to make last night!”

4. “You look really hot tonight…do you have a fever?”

5. “Why are you wearing that? We can’t go swimming. It’s December. And it’s 10 o’clock at night!”

6. “You don’t “spell bad”… well… it’s not as bad as your grammar!”

7. “No, it’s not really all that weird that you are addicted to Lego Star Wars. What’s weird is that you are good at it.”

8. “You don’t do all the work around here, just most of it.”

9. “What makes you think we have money for children’s shoes when we *supposedly* can’t afford Angry Birds Rio?”

10. “I can’t believe you thought I would exclude you! Of course you’re included when I say everything is better with bacon.”
