During the junior high years very male learns the phrase “size-matters” and it becomes the source of many male-oriented jokes and innuendos long into adulthood.
Let me set the record straight–size DOES matter.
Research points to the fact that women prefer small.
Women prefer their husband to become proficient at mastering the small… but meaning acts of service. Small acts of kindness, service, initiative that add up to being a big deal.
Marriages grow distant because one or both spouses stopped doing the small things that really matter.
When I was preparing my series “Be her hero: How not to suck as a husband” I asked wives (via Twitter/facebook) this question: “Ladies, what are little things that make a big difference in marriage?”
Here are 25 answers they provided:

When you set out on a journey and you get off track by a small amount… over a long period of time you’ll radically miss your destination. I know many marriages have missed their intended marriage destination!
Pay attention to your marriage and get back on course by doing the little things today.
