How to Love Your Husband (when he’s not acting lovable!)

May 12, 2014Allison

 

So, I say to Derrick last night, “You know you irritate me sometimes. What can I do about that?”

Derrick said, “Get over yourself.”

He is so helpful.

Little irritants, such as throwing his clothes on the floor, become magnified if we are not spending quality time together. His answer: more sex...Mine: there's a little more to it! Read on... #marriage #tips #advice #connectSo, I say, “What about sex.”

Derrick, “Yes, sex is helpful.”

Me: “How is it helpful?”

Derrick: “Sex solves everything.”

Me: “This conversation is irritating me. I am going to the bedroom to think.”

Derrick: “Woo, Hoo! I win.”

Me: “I am going to the bedroom to think not have sex.”

Derrick: “It might help you think.”

 

I thought about the topic of irritating husbands over the next few days and I must admit Derrick was right: sex is helpful. I noticed the more disconnected I am from Derrick the more irritating I find him.

Little irritants, such as throwing his clothes on the floor, become magnified if we are not spending quality time together. When Derrick takes me out for breakfast, I could care less about the clothes on the floor or the books piled up on the dresser.

Sundays are perhaps the day when I love Derrick the most because we spend the morning in bed drinking coffee, reading, and talking while the kids watch Sunday morning cartoons. It’s not that I don’t love him Monday through Saturday; it is just on Sunday we are able to sit back and enjoy each other. It helps me to remember why I married Derrick…even if he never picked up after himself, I still would have married him because he loves me… irritating habits and all.

The key to a great marriage is taking the time to connect with your partner and of course lots of sex ;)

    Great point! I never expected sex to be the answer when I clicked on this article, but it makes total sense, Allison. Thanks for sharing.
