My husband and I are continually working on making our marriage better by primarily bettering our communication. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, but I try everyday to improve. I love being married and having that special someone that I can go to for anything and that I am 100% comfortable around. We can have quite the battles, which I all consider lessons. Here is one lesson I learned recently.
Learn what to make a battle and what not to. The other day I checked the mail and there was a small package for my husband, Kevin. At the time I did not find it a big deal to open it because I was curious. When Kevin came home I realized just how much he wanted to open his mail, because he immediately started asking about it and acting upset. I asked him why he was so upset and he accused me of opening his mail because of my insecurities. Trying to reason can prove ineffective when a guy has his mind set. Walking away from the conversation was my only option.
Thinking about the situation later, I realized that the whole argument and ruined evening could have been avoided at the simple cost of not be curious and opening his mail. My small piece of advice is that first of all discuss opening each other’s mail and then limit it to just envelopes no packages.
