Love Dare days 10-13

We are continuing the Love Dare book and it is just wonderful I can't say enough good things about it.

Day 10: LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL
Do something out of the ordinary today for your spouse- something that proves (to you and them) taht your love is based on your choice and nothing else. Wash her car. Clean the kitchen. Buy his favorite dessert. Fold the laundry demonstrate love to them for the sheer joy of being their partner in marriage.
The only way love can last a lifetime is if it's unconditional. The truth is this: love is not determined by the one being loved but rather by the one choosing to love.

DAY 11: LOVE CHERISHES
What need does your spouse have that you could meet today? Can you run an errand? Give a back rub or foot massage? Is there any housework you could help with? Choose a gesture that says, "I cherish you" and do it with a smile.

DAY 12: LOVE LETS THE OTHER WIN
Demonstrate love by willingly choosing to give in to an area of disagreement between you and your spouse. Tell them you are putting their preference first.

DAY 13: LOVE FIGHTS FAIR. Talk with your spouse about establishing healthy rules of engagement.If your mater is not ready for this, then write out your own personal rules to "fight" by. Resolve to abide by them when the next disagreement occurs.
