people are love and respecting (now).
Join the movement.
I have been married for three months now. My husband is very clean and I am fairly neat, but since being married I have kind of chilled out in that area. In fact, compared to my husband, I am lazy.
What can I do? I don’t want to make him feel like he got cheated by marrying me.
Don’t be so hard on yourself! As you’ll see in this video, I’m not the Neatest Nancy out there, either.
You didn’t say that your husband has said anything about this, but if you want to, this is a great moment to honor him by saying something like this:
“You know what, honey, I really respect the way that you are so disciplined in these areas. I want to learn from you.”
Use these first few months to figure out each other’s strengths, learn from each other, and create a gameplan for the to-do list. Start having the conversations now and create a win-win in your marriage, where you honor each other’s strengths and give grace for each other’s weaknesses.
Still feeling lazy? This would be a great conversation to bring up with your husband, or with an older, wiser woman who can speak into the topic.
From my Mr. Clean heart,
Joy and The Dusty Vaccuum
