Do right by your spouse. And then your spouse won’t be thinking in terms of their rights.

No rights. Just responsibilities or obligations to each other. The obligation to respect and care for each other – physically and emotionally.

When each of the couple cares for and respects each other, then the issue of rights falls moot. Both are quite happy in the relationship.

Don’t look to see that your rights are honored. Rather, reflect on whether you are doing your obligations – and beyond – for your marriage.
