What has your spouse complained about recently that is a valid/realistic complaint? Show him/her you’ve been listening by surprising them by meeting this need in some way. If there is a complaint that is within your power to do something about, then do it. If the pillows are old and flat, purchase some new ones. If the shed has become full of lots of stored items for that “just in case” day, clean it out. If she needs a few extra hours of sleep because of a new baby, take baby for a visit to the grandparents for a few hours. Valid complaints are really a message that something needs to be done. So listen and go do something about it.
