In today’s world it is so easy to “show” your spouse that you love them. Hallmark has made a business of it. Jewelry commercials have, “I love you,” all over them.

So easy, in fact, that many people have told their boss, friend or a complete stranger that they love them upon ending a phone call only to pause and turn red-faced in realization.
