Communication is another key to the success of your relationship. You don’t want to talk until you’re understood but speak until there is no misunderstanding.
Instead of sitting down and having awkward silence (especially if you haven’t spoken about something fun in a really long time), I’m going to give you my husband’s recommendation because this has been amazing for our marriage.
3. Play video games.
Yes, this is a video game, and although I’m not a huge fan of video games, I absolutely love playing this game with my husband because we have to communicate if we want to win.
And coming from two very competitive people, there’s no yelling for us because it’s a co-op team game. You win together or lose together, but you have to communicate to succeed.
When you do play the game, be sure to grab some tissues because you two will be laughing so hard you’ll be crying.
4. Know your spouse’s warning signs.
I know I’m grumpy and really unlovable when I’m hungry.
My husband has his unlovable moments when he doesn’t feel like he’s in control of life, so when difficult trials come, I know I need to provide extra support and compassion to him.
Another way you can love your spouse when they’re actions are unlovable is to pay attention to their warning signs. How are they when they’re tired, hungry, stressed, or confused?
In these moments, you need to pay attention to them, be patient with your spouse, and love them that much more.
Because it’s in these moments when they need you the most.
Keep loving each other and being patient with one another.
As you intentionally date your spouse, spend time talking to each other, and pay attention to your spouses warning signs, you’ll be able to love your spouse in their unlovable moments.
