Photo by AuzigogIf your marriage has any chance of surviving the test of time then you must make sure one thing is accomplished, understanding and accepting your spouse. It is no secret that half of all marriages entered into today last through the test of time and there is a very simple reason for this. The reason is that most people give up on understanding and accepting their spouse and instead start to resent them.
The reason that understanding and accepting your spouse is so difficult is that most people naturally assume that they will find someone that will be able to fit into their lives. We don’t expect that the love of our life will have some different wants and needs than us so we don’t realize for a while that we must put effort into understanding and accepting our spouses.
Once this time comes so many people don’t want to put effort into changing themselves that the two partners clash and the harm is almost irreparable. Understanding and accepting your spouse is about realizing that your wants and needs are important, but compromise is even more of a necessity.
When you have come to the realization that understanding and accepting your spouse is important then your marriage will only get better. You always need to stand up for yourself, but if both partners are willing to compromise the marriage can’t possibly suffer.
