4. We must be willing to compromise.

In order for a marriage to work, there must be compromise. One spouse can’t always be right and the other can’t always be wrong. There must be a happy medium that works best for both partners. My husband often says that in a marriage you win together and lose together. There can’t be a winner and a loser because WE ARE ONE. So, we must work it out. Disagreeing isn’t necessarily a bad thing; it’s just difficult. When we disagree, we must consider why we think the way we do and articulate it to our partner. It is a great exercise in self-reflection and communication with our spouse. It can make us stronger and more united, if we allow it to.7 days pic
