Learning how to complement your spouse can create an environment in your home that will allow your relationship to flourish. To complement your spouse is to complete and perfect her. To build this type of relationship with your spouse, you must never tear her down - physically, emotionally or verbally.

Complementing your spouse will create a thriving environment in your home and family that is filled with love. Here are 3 ways that will help you complement each other and build a lasting relationship:

If your spouse shows an interest in an activity or asks for you to do something always say ‘yes’. Doing this will help deepen your love and respect for each other. You will also feel much more free and expressive with each other as fear will be eliminated from your relationship.
