Your wife feels you are open to her when..
-You share your feelings, telling about your day and difficulties
-You say, “let`s talk”, ask her what she`s feeling, and ask for her opinions
-Your face shows you want to talk – relaxed body language, good eye-contact
You take her for a walk to talk and reminisce about how you met or perhaps you talk about the kids and problems she may having with them
-You pray with her
-You give her your full attention.. no grunting responses while trying to watch tv, read the newspaper or write emails
-You discuss financial concerns, possible job changes, or ideas for the future
