Do not hesitate to praise your wife, even if there is not for what.
She cooked a delicious soup? She cooked the soup, that taste is reminiscent of a real soup? She cooked just an awful soup?
Look, why do you search for some abstract and boring truth? Say: “You’re such a good fellow,” Say: “Do you know, not bad at all!” Say, “You’re the best.”
And yes, do not be afraid that now this soup will be with you always. Believe me, she as good as you understand that it needs to be done something with recipe. In the world, unfortunately, very few people who will praise her for everything, no matter what she did.
Cool if you will become that kind of person.
Benefit of such behavior
