Kindness in Marriage

How Kind are You?

Without kindness in your relationship, your marriage won't last. Here are some ways to check up on yourself to see how kind you are in your marriage:

You say "yes" a lot more than "no" when your spouse asks for a favor or for help.

You are willing to share that last piece of pie or cookie because being kind is being generous.

You listen with your heart.

You don't interrupt your spouse.

You are polite and say "please" and "thank you" when speaking to your spouse.

You show respect for your mate.

You let your spouse know how much he/she is appreciated

You don't roll your eyes when your spouse says something you disagree with.

You routinely look for the good in your spouse.

You are helpful.

You don't allow unkind comments to flow from your lips.

You are sure that your teasing is fun and not hurtful.
