20 Things to Say for a Stronger Marriage

The song, “Oh be Careful Little Eyes*” comes to my mind when I think of what to say in marriage. Specifically, “Oh be careful little mouth what you say.”  When it comes to marriage, I think the tongue is one of the biggest pitfalls. Speaking in anger is a great danger. Not speaking truth, also a great danger.

The words we speak with our mouths can be used to build up or to tear down. If we want stronger marriages, we should seek to build up our love. It’s always important to consider the needs of your spouse as you speak. Remember they too have a heart, a soul, and feelings that can be hurt or that can be shored up.

They say timing is everything. I’ve learned over the years that this is true in marriage as well. Sharing your hurts and frustrations in a moment when he is feeling tired, or overwhelmed, isn’t going to go very far in helping you to get over your hurt. Be wise and considerate of his feelings when approaching a difficult subject. 
At the same time, knowing just the right moment to compliment him on his strong biceps, or calf muscles, well, let’s just say that is an adept skill any wife should learn, and not forget.
