I hate the word “should.”
I really try to respond with calm and kindness, but, honestly, I have heard that word used to shame, control, and even abuse.
Now I know there are legitimate reasons for using the word. We “should” smile more often, eat our veggies and kiss our sweeties.
That said, don’t let the “shoulds” run your life or your marriage.
You are unique. Your husband is unique. Your marriage is unique. Play within God’s guidelines and do what works for the both of you.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. Ralph Waldo Emerson
