Action Points for Married Couples

From my reading of The Discipline of Grace come these action points based on 1 Corinthians 13.  Can you think of more?  These are Jerry Bridges originally, I am passing them on to you:

  1. I am patient with you because I love you and want to forgive you.
  2. I am kind to you because I love you and want to help you.
  3. I do not envy your possessions or your gifts because I love you and want you to have the best.
  4. I do not boast about my attainments because I love you and want to hear about yours.
  5. I am not proud because I love you and want to esteem you before myself.
  6. I am not rude because I love you and care about your feelings.
  7. I am not self-seeking because I love you and want to meet your needs.
  8. I am not easily angered by you because I love you and want to overlook your offenses.
  9. I do not keep a record of your wrongs because I love you and love covers a multitude of sins.
