Put your love on Display

The way we treat our spouse in public influences our husband’s appreciation for our marriage and us! If we compliment them, and speak of their strengths when with their friends they feel like Kings.

When you put your love on display- people know you think highly of your man and hold your marriage to a higher standard. It is a wonderful perpetuating cycle because then you find yourself trying to live up to the notion that you have a lovely relationship. If we take great measures to protect our marriage’s “reputation” in public then it makes it easier to do so in private.

I have often seen couples lash out at one another with almost no filter that others are around and always think to myself… what must their relationship be like behind close doors if this is how they talk to one another when I am here??? Please place your love for him on a Billboard for all to see. Make it known and inturn you make yourself accountable. We don’t want to be hypocrites and so the “fake it to make it” logic is a way to start if you find yourself not feeling nice things about your man, let alone wanting to say them.

Here’s a little fun idea…. For 2 weeks make a point to compliment your man in a public situation where he can bask in your affirmation every single day. Let me know how it goes and test my theory- see if it boosts the love meter in your house.

  2. I totally respect and look up to women who praise their hubby in public, but most of all when surrounded by their girlfriends. I think it's easy to forget that they are one of the most important people in our lives - why would we want to speak ill of them? Especially when doing so makes not only our marriage, but us look weak.
