Compliments Help Strengthen Marriages

By Carol Ann

For some people, giving praise comes easy. And for others, not so much. I fall somewhere in the middle of those two, but I do know that I don't give out compliments nearly as often as I should. While it is very easy to fall into a rut and take our spouses for granted after many years of being married, we all need to remember that everyone appreciates a pat on the back now and then.

It is not enough for you to assume that she knows how you feel about her is not enough. She needs you to tell her. She needs to hear you say she's beautiful, that you love her, and how wonderful you think she is. And don't forget to also acknowledge and praise her for doing all of the little minor tasks she performs daily with no thanks. She doesn't just do these things because she wants to, so make sure you tell her thank you.

Take the time to notice and praise her for the little things that often get taken for granted. Whether she has brought you a cup of coffee, or has brought in the morning paper for you to read, or has reorganized a room, it is important to acknowledge her and tell her you appreciate all of her hard work.

If you do this, you will quickly see improvement in your marriage. You also will likely find that she will begin to compliment you more often also. It is important to work together as a team when you want to eliminate marriage problems. If you let your partner know how much you value and appreciate them, that can be the catalyst for change.

The creating of such a nurturing and encouraging environment can help you both work more effectively as a team. Start complimenting your wife today and you will notice a world of difference in the atmosphere around the home. And begin to enjoy your marriage more than ever.
