Being Mute in Marriage Sometimes Shows Love

Some Words are Best Left Alone

At a recent family reunion it became crystal clear to me that some concerns between happily married people should be left alone. And I say this because each member of a happy marriage has their own way of dealing with certain issues going on with them. And couples should realize that were all different and because of that we handle things differently. So bear in mind some issues should be left with your partner to handle on their own and in their own way.

Sometimes Your Help Isn't Needed

Sometimes the best advice is giving no advice at all. Sure that’s hard to do but guess what if you keep you mouth shut then your words not spoken wont bite you in the butt later. I think we all have warning drums that pound in our head when we about to share our two cents when the drums are telling us to back off and leave the room till the thought of sharing your advise leaves your brain. The drums are there for a reason and that reason is to pay attention to what your about to say and then don’t say it.

No Strings

Sometimes loving couples just don’t agree and when that happens love should prevail and mind your own business should be the business of the day. There is no one in my life that I love more then my wife, but that love doesn’t give me the right to constantly try to invade her thinking and impose my thoughts on her. I love her enough to realize that love sometimes works best when it left alone. So as much as it sometimes bothers me and I keep my opinion to myself and just share my love with her. That’s the best that I can offer and she because I love her and she deserves my love with no strings attached to it.

Love & Say Nothing

Sometimes love is enough and when that happens I clam up and just hug when appropriate. Sometime love travels best when its silent.
