Guys, if your wife says that to you—IGNORE her. Well, don’t ignore her, but you know what I mean. I know a couple who have “agreed” to not buy cards, flowers, special somethings for birthdays, Valentine’s day, Sweetest day, and other flowers, candy, and card days. They explained why, “It’s a waste of money,” they said. Then, talking privately with our friend she said, “I wouldn’t MIND getting flowers and cards, but we have an agreement.” I would suggest NEVER give something out of obligation. Give in order to honor you wife because you love her. If that’s your agreement, don’t let that stop you from buying flowers, cards, or candy on other days. Honoring your spouse in front of your kids is a great example—one that will last a lifetime.
