My wife and I have been married since 1987, As a young married couple, we committed to each other to love and respect each other. As we watch others who are married today we are surprised at just how often couples can really break that covenant with each other. I promised my wife that no matter what happened in our marriage, I would never allow myself to verbally “wife bash” when I was hanging out with other guys. She too made this commitment, that when with other women she would not verbally disrespect me as her husband. It is a great feeling of love and trust that has been established over the years together and it has made our love stronger. By knowing that what we say to each other in person is what we describe to others behind our love ones back. I’ve been in the room when a guy will complain or make fun of something his wife has said or done, and while it may seem funny at the time, I know he’d never say those things in front of his wife, as he’d cause major damage to his relationship with her.
