How Polite Are You to Your Spouse?


We have a friend who never shies from asking blunt questions. The other day he said, “Hey, on a scale of one to ten, how polite are you two to each other in your marriage?”


Do I have to share my number?


That was a pretty interesting question.


But you think about it. We don’t often use our social graces in our marriage where we need them most.


Especially when you’re tired, when you’re hungry.


Late at night is a bad time for me to be nice.


It sure is. I’m glad you’re aware of that. Friend, think about that in your own marriage. Don’t let courtesy be passé. Treat your spouse how you’d like to be treated—with a good measure of politeness.
