I mean,most of these don't seem like the sort of thing that should be considered a surprising act of kindness - saying something nice about him, smiling at him when he gets home, giving him the benefit of the doubt, spending time with him, kissing him on the cheek, these should all be the default for a relationship rather than extras that will surprise him. Geez. I feel sorry for a man who is surprised by his wife being nice to him. He should've married someone else.

I agree that being kind and thoughtful and showing appreciation for your husband should be default behavior. I agree that this list is an odd mix of things one could do as a surprise and things one should be doing every day, with a couple things one probably ought not to do at all thrown in. I basically just liked it as a reminder to think of and appreciate your husband in big and small ways, but I can see how it's an odd list and implies some different things than I intended.

I felt the same way reading this list. Most of these things are a given on a day to day basis for me in my marriage. I couldn’t imagine a day going by without listening to my husband without forming a response, kissing his cheek, spending time with him, joining him in the shower, among others.
