What you say by what you do … and don’t do.
In recent comment, cvonpete said he does a certain thing for his bride “Even if we are fighting over something…It’s my way of saying, I love you no matter what.”
I know doing nice things for our spouse can be difficult when we are upset with them; but I think it’s a brilliant way to show that the argument/disagreement/problem is temporary, while our love is NOT temporary.
If this is the case, then what does it communicate when we don’t do certain things when we are upset with our bride? Seems to me it suggests that our love is more about how we feel in the moment than a long-term commitment. I’m not saying it does mean that, but it could certainly come across that way.
What do you not do when there is tension between you and your bride? What might that be communicating to her?
