Don't tell your wife that you did not miss her.
The other day my wife came home and after complaining about work and checking up on all of my little tasks for the day, asked if I had missed her. I was not in the best of moods and I had spent the day working on the various projects so in an annoyed huff I said no.
Needless to say this did not go over well. So always tell your wife that you missed her.
