Love Dare Day Five

Ask your spouse to tell you three things that cause him or her to be uncomfortable or irritated with you. YOu must do so without attacking them or justifying your behavior. This is from their perspective only.(Taken from the Love Dare book)


  1. I did this one this morning since Ted is going to leave today. He kept saying that I don't irritate him. But I pressed on. He came up with two.
    1. I go into clean mode and want everything picked up and put up and spotless.(usually PMS time)
    2. I yell at the kids but tell him he can't. I do this. Mostly because sometimes I feel like he shouldn't yell at them because he isn't here that much. HOWEVER, I know he doesn't like it and now I can fix it.

  2. The church I belong to advised that we skip this day. My husband and I agreed. It would most likely end in an argument if we talked about what irritated us about each other!

  3. I actually just asked and let him tell me. I didn't react and went in with these are things that I can do to help fix myself. Cause chances are if they irritate my husband they irritate someone else too. I'm not sure if my husband is doing the Love Dare or not. I would like to say no, but I'm not 100% on that.
    But you do have to do whatever is best for your marriage. I think if something in the book seems like it will cause friction instead of the healing then you should skip it.
