Top tips for a succesful marriage. Tip 7.

Ideally you should do chesed (kindness) out of sincere love for other people. But if you don’t have these feelings, you are still obligated to do chesed. The same holds true in a marriage. Ideally you should love and respect your wife. If not you are still obligated to treat her the way you would if you did have these feelings. Keeping this up will eventually increase your positive feelings.

Taken from ‘Marriage’ by Rabbi Pliskin.

(Substitute he for she where appropriate though to be fair these tips are more appropriate for men than women).
