The usual response is “You won’t say that if you knew the kind of advice my spouse gives”. Ok, so maybe you are right but consider this possibility. You still can place value or importance on a piece of advice without following through on the advice. The way you show value to your spouse’s advice is to listen to it without complaining or assuming that you already know what he or she is going to say. If you chose not to take the advice, that is your decision but you can still listen and give your spouse’s opinion the weight it deserves for your level of commitment. The point is simple, by valuing your spouse’s advice you are demonstrating that your spouse is the most significant person in your life and their input is important to you. This is a show of intentional commitment to one another.
