Showing Gratitude:

Text 5 things that you are thankful for to your husband every day.  These 5 things don't have to be about him.  You are sharing a life together so anything that you are grateful for are part of that.  He just might reciprocate.  It will give you a great insight into his perspective.


Be Clear About What And Need You Want And Ask For It:

Valerie shared this great format to help us with this.  Once you are clear on what you want and need follow this model:

  • Compliment/show appreciation
  • Share how you are feeling
  • Tell him what you need

Follow up bonus question:

Ask him what he needs from you in the coming week
