Couple's Corner ~ September 23

Today's couple's corner is the "A Mile in My Shoes" exercise

Today, try to put yourself in your spouse's shoes. If the wife normally cooks today. Let the husband do it, even if everyone knows he can't cook. Believe me, there's nothing like a burnt meal to make a man appreciate his wife. If the husband would normally take out the trash or mow the lawn, let the wife do it.

These exercises help couples appreciate what the other adds to the family unit. It's more than using imagination. It's now getting the experience and understanding that each person is necessary and each person brings something important to the marriage.

This is an interesting exercise since I do most of the housework, dishes and laundry here while the other half works (ex wife). But it is valuable to see that 'womans' work, is not easy, especially when they also hold full time jobs. It's time for the male of the species to do their share.
