Marriage Monday: Why Compliments are the Key to Happiness

Marriage Monday has not been forgotten. I know it’s been awhile since I did one of these posts but I swear I’m trying to do more of them for you guys.

For this Marriage Monday, I wanted to talk about why compliments are key to a happy healthy marriage.

I, of course, am only talking from my own experience so I’m not stating any of this as a fact. These are just things I’ve noticed that help bring me and my husband together.

So I know we hear compliments everyday, but there is something special about hearing it from your spouse. A simple “you look beautiful/handsome”, really goes a long way.

I think the reason compliments are so important is that it’s a way of showing gratitude for the other person. By saying a simple compliment here and there, you are letting your spouse know that you are grateful for them and that you are recognizing them.

Compliments are huge for staying connected with your spouse.

Nobody likes to feel ignored or unappreciated. So make sure you shower your spouse in some compliments today!

Here are a couple of my favorite compliments that always bring a smile to my face and make me feel special:

“you look incredible”

“I’m so lucky to be with you”

“I can’t wait to show you off”

“You make me so happy”

“I love being with you”

“I love everything about you”

These are just some examples of simple compliments that can speak volumes and really brighten your spouses day when they hear it.

I love when my husband surprises me with a little compliment like this here and there. It really helps me to know that he is grateful for me and that he is taking the time to notice me.

So next time you are at a loss for words or just sitting around, try saying one of these simple compliments to your spouse and see their face light up with a smile!

Till next time!
