To Err is Human: Respond with Kindness and Kisses
Sometimes in a relationship it can be easy to forget that as well as darling husbands know us, they are not mind-readers. It can be equally difficutl to always remember that they are not perfect . . . nor are we. This means it is not really reasonable of us to expect our beloved to always say or do the right thing.
One surefire way to nip an argument in the bud is to not let it start. The next time he says or does something that rubs you the wrong way, take a deep breath, remember how much you love him, and respond with kindness. Give him the benefit of the doubt, a chance to clarify, the opportunity to apologize or just "give him a pass."
All the lip action that would have been wasted on fighting words can now be used for some good, thorough kissing: a much better alternative-doncha think?
Here are two bits of musical inspiration for your enjoyment:
Shut up and Kiss Me by Orianthi
Shut up and Kiss Me by Mary Chapin Carpenter
