The way you speak about your spouse in public shapes the reality of your relationship.
Usually these are my goals when talking to Jen around friends or acquaintances:
- Be funny
- Be respectful
Why? Because I’m selfish and I want people to like me more than I desire to show respect to my wife.
Most of the time humor in a large group of people comes at the expense of another person. That’s something I constantly battle with because it goes against everything I believe to belittle another person for a few giggles, especially when that person is my wife.
What do you struggle with publicly?
