Marriages can only be better if we start to think right now of the things that our partner does that we don’t do it by ourselves, we can’t do all things surely, but we can only play our part and let our partner play their part too and then appreciate them for playing their part. It is often easier to see those things that are partner does wrong and somehow difficult to recognize those things that they do right but then, even when we recognize it, we often think of it as their responsibilities. This kind of attitude must be put away and welcome appreciation into our marriage for every kind of good deed our partners carried out.
We may have long been harboring some criticism in our heart against our partner for some times now and finding it difficult to see thing in the normal sense of view, we have to let it go and learn to live together, at times it may not be physical battle anymore, we need to turn to prayer and ask God to show us the good things that are invisible to us that our partner does that we can show them the deserved appreciation. Criticism breaks down marriage while appreciation builds up our marital relationship.
A simple word like “thank you” can go a long way and also a written note too can be effective in showing and complimenting the one we love.

Thanks for changing the oil in my car.” “That dress looks great on you.” You can go on and on with different version of your own word in expressing your appreciation to the one you love.
