Things Not To Say To Your Spouse

Marriage is a wonderfully complicated thing. I think there is only one way to keep a happy and loving relationship with your spouse... put much time and effort in the relationship. call it emotional investment if you will, it you put in the needed effort, perhaps even more. the rewards you will reap will be more than enough!

With that in mind, here is a list of things NOT to say to your spouse, and keep the peace in your home:
  • I told you so.
  • I can do whatever I like.
  • You're just like your mother.
  • If you don't like it, you can just leave.
  • You're always in a bad mood.
  • Can't you do anything right?
  • You just don't think.
  • That was stupid.
  • It's your fault.
  • All you ever do is think of yourself.
  • What's wrong with you?
  • If you really loved me, you'd do this.
  • All you ever do is complain.
  • You're such a baby.
  • I can't do anything to please you.
  • Turnabout's fair play.
  • You get what you deserve.
  • Why don't you ever listen to me?
  • What's your problem?
  • Can't you be more responsible?
  • I can never understand you.
  • What were you thinking?
  • Do you always have to be right?
  • You're impossible.
  • I don't know why I put up with you.
  • You deserve a dose of your own medicine.
