    How easily do you criticize your spouse?

    Some people seem to always have something negative to say about their spouse. How easy is it for someone to get a negative comment from you about your spouse or significant other?

    I am not married, but if I was I have no reason to judge him for any reason, as he is a solid rock for me, emotionally and otherwise.

    I used to do this a lot.  I refrain from doing this as much as possible now.  I make a consentrated effort to compliment him as much as I can.  I have found that when I treat him like someone special he returns the favor.  People can get me going if he has just got on my last nerve when I am stressed but I am even working on that one too.

    I was quite the nag when I was married (just like my Mom) and looking back on it, that was probably my insecurities. Won't go there again.

    For me it is very easy to point out his faults as we are not merely couples but very good friends. Well, I never criticize him in front of others.

    My husband of 35 years and I both do way too much of this.  It has been the subject of many conversations.  I think the fact that we try to curb it, and let each other know when it's getting out of hand is what keeps the peace in our house.

    I must say he is much better at being generous with praise than I am, but I try.

    Not a problem for me. I can easily share my opinion about my wife. But the point is I have nothing negative about her:)

    The only bad thing I can say about my redhead is:  She was dumb enough to marry me.  That's not really a complaint, though, just a cause for wonderment.

    After all, I was in the process of my 6th divorce when we met.  How nuts do you have to be to hook up with a guy like that? 

    Other than that, it's all good and then some, as hinted in the opening lyrics from one of my original songs:

    She's got my back
    I've got her back
    You cain't git us in a sneak attack
    We'll see you coming a million miles away-y-y!
