Compliment your Significant other Often

October 11, 2013

I’ve been married for over 3 years and I’ve been with my husband since 2005. I was 20! In all this time I’ve learned a thing or two. One tip that I advise is “Compliment your significant other often.” It’s easy to point out what someone got wrong, but how often do you take the time to say thank you for a job well done? It will brighten their day and motivate them to do it again.

    I totally agree about complimenting! Being married ten years and with my man of God for twelve, he is my best friend. He tells me I am beautiful every day even when I am at my worst because in his eyes I, his queen, am beautiful. I compliment him regularly telling him he smells good, he looks nice, I love how his shirt fits, etc.

    In addition, incorporate laughter in your relationship. Dance for and with your spouse spontaneously, do something silly and funny, wrestle. So many ways to have fun. We laugh every single day!!

    Also, and very important, find time to pray together. If your schedule crosses, find a Saturday to get up early and praise God together. Also, have a bible study together when time permits but most importantly do your best to schedule a time to study the word of a God.
    I am a true witness that is because God is that Third Cord that binds our marriage together, this is how we easily and regularly compliment each other, laugh together, pray, praise and study together and our marriage is great! Yes, we have disagreements, but we agree to disagree and get back on track right away.

    Peace and blessings
