I believe that compromise and consideration are very
important in a successful marriage. I should always be
open to the needs of my spouse. I should also
acknowledge my own needs and communicate them to
my spouse to avoid resentment and misunderstanding.
Conflicts will arise but in a marriage one cannot panic
and think that the matter is greater than the love you
have found and maintained. Talking, writing letters,
seeking spiritual counseling or from family, listing and
evaluating pros and cons, or readdress I an issue at
another time can be means to resolving conflict.
Remember that neither of you are perfect and that your
spouse is not the competition, when either of you win,
you both win.
