“It’s not real if it’s not in my inbox”
A fellow I used to work with often reminded me that I had not told him something if I had not sent him an e-mail about it. My bride and I have adopted this largely – we sometimes even send e-mails when we are sitting a few feet apart.
This prevents many problems with not hearing, or not remembering. It also makes sure that the details are right, and ends forever arguments that start with “You didn’t tell me …”. If you and your bride have problems with things not being communicated, e-mails, text messages, or a place to leave notes is a good plan.
BTW – today and Friday’s tip are along the lines of finding a way to work around a problem so that problem is ended for good. I encourage you to try to find ways to end things that occur repeatedly. Constant arguments, bickering, and frustration are bad for your marriage and your family; if you can work around so the source of problem is removed, do so.
