A friend and I were talking about how expectations can cause a lot of friction in marriage, especially when you don’t voice those expectations. How can your sweetie know what you need and want if you don’t tell him?
I realize that’s a bit 101, but mostly I needed a reminder and I figured y’all might need one too. It’s easy to assume that our husbands know what we think, what we want, and what we need. They’ve lived with us for awhile and they should know, right?
Truth is, they only know what we communicate to them. Being plain about it all is a big help to them and you’ll have fewer misunderstandings, which generally means fewer arguments.
