Know when to walk away (and when to run?)
Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it. (Found anonymous around the Interwebs)
A very important marriage skill, and one that can be extremely difficult to learn, is knowing when to walk away. The reasons for doing this range from simply giving her space to enjoy something alone to getting out of her face before she screams things she does not mean – and quite a bit in-between.
No matter how much we love each other, there are times we need to be alone. There are also times when it’s difficult to impossible not being rude and nasty, and leaving someone alone at such a time is both loving and healthy for the relationship. Other times folks need alone time to figure out how they feel, what they are thinking, or what they want.
Wanting to be left alone for a bit does not mean your bride does not love you. Leaving your bride alone does not mean you don’t love her. Know when to hug, when to talk, and when to walk.
