I would appreciate my wife giving me increased respect in a number of aspects. Respect has to be given, and earned. Respect cannot be really demanded. Relationships are asking for what you want, and trying to give your partner what they want. Sometimes I find myself expecting my wife to know what I want. Then I am disappointed. But then, I realize I naver really asked for what wa important to me. Wish List: 1. Increased respect for my religious beliefs. My wife goes to a different church, and sometimes argues taht i am wrong in my beliefs, instead of tryihng to be respectful about our differences. 2. Increased respect for my political ideas. My wife ofte expresse the political ideas from her friends or church, and criticizes my ideas disrepsectfully. 3. Increased respect for the sports teams I root for. I bought some Team Log mugs, and I am constantly hearing critiicsm that the expense was beyond our budget. I will think of more. My next step is to think of Loving phrases to ask my wife for more respect. .
