Couple Mentality

in the generous life

My husband was in a check out line yesterday and within … oh, say, 30 seconds he mentioned our marriage (it was a comment about how we are now cooking for two because our kids are grown).

We are so much a part of each other’s lives that it just comes out in conversation. I think conversations like that helps push our culture into a more marriage friendly place. I think it also becomes a part of a cycle where we choose to mention our spouse and that makes us marriage focused which makes it easier to see ourselves as a couple and we are more likely to mention our spouse and around and around it goes.

If you are feeling a bit adrift in your marriage, why not make it a point to mention your husband in conversation. See if it doesn’t help you develop a greater sense of “coupleness.” Sometimes just the simplest of things can start a good change.

It goes without saying that when we do speak about our spouse it is favorable. I’ve learned that what we focus on we get more of. I read a book shortly after we got married – After the Honeymoon. The key message was to speak words of life not death over and into your marriage. It’s worked so far and will continue to do so.

Thanks for making that point. As I was drifting off to sleep last night I realized that I should have added that modifier. Positive, gals, positive comments.
