Today marks a new series here at cindybeall.com. Because I’m fancy like that. Nah, really, I just took an idea from my church and thought I’d incorporate here and share it with all 33 of you. This series is entitled Five Easy Steps to Drive A Wedge in Between You and Your Spouse. Don’t be jealous that you didn’t think of the title first. So, here is step 1: 1. Belittle your spouse in public. This is incredibly important to get the bitterness factor raised up a notch in your marriage. Instead of confronting your spouse about something that is bothering you in private in a loving and gentle way, make sure you wait until a lot of people are around, especially some of their closest friends, and mention that thing they do/don’t do in front of everyone. And as everyone starts to laugh, say a few more things about your spouse to make it hurt a little bit more. When you spouse looks at you with those eyes that say “how could you”, punch him/her in the arm and say something sweet like, “Oh, honey, you know I’m kiddin'”. This one works like a charm. Every. Single. Time. I’ve got four more great ideas this week so don’t forget to come back and check them all out! Yeah, baby.
