#4 NEVER make fun, or joke at your spouses expense.

I know that this may sound simple… well, actually, it is, but I am always surprised at how many couples joke at the other’s expense. It is almost like they are too afraid to talk through something, or they don’t even know they are doing it… what if instead of tearing down your spouse in front of other people you tried building them up. What may be “just joking” to you, most likely has some truth to it, which is why it hurts your spouses feelings.

  1. […] Never make fun of your spouse. My wife Katie has been doing a series of blog posts on our relationship rules and this one is broken by so many spouses. This one change would make a world of difference in your marriage. […]

  2. Linked here from another blog. I like your short and succinct posts that carry important truths. Humor that is demeaning is not humor. True humor involves everyone and builds up; humor that tears down or humiliates is really mockery, something Proverbs is very hard on! Good post.
