  4. I love how open you are. Has your wife recently compromised? Let her know that you appreciate that compromise.
  5. I love how positive you are. Does your wife always look on the bright side? Believe it or not, it can be exhausting to maintain a positive attitude. Give your wife props for her optimism.
  6. I love how you treat my friends/family. Family gatherings can be difficult with in-laws. Acknowledge your wife’s efforts and tell her that you love the way she’s able to create healthy relationships with your family/friends.

Scenario affirmations to remember and try out…

  1. Compliment your wife’s appearance. Did she try out a new lipstick? Did she spend a little more time on her hair? Or maybe she’s recently lost weight. Make it a point to recognize your wife’s beauty. She will appreciate you noticing her extra effort.
  2. Ask your wife for her opinion. “What do you think?” “How does this make you feel?” “Do you think I’m wrong?” Starting a conversation with an affirmation, that invites her to voice her thoughts, shows her that you care about her thoughts. The reality is as a husband you want to be heard, too. Your wife isn’t any different.
  3. Appreciate the ways she’s going the extra mile. Is your wife balancing a volunteering effort along with other tasks? Is your wife training for a 5k?
