When you turn to your partner...

Accepting your Partner’s Differences

Do you remember how amazed you were by the ways you and your newfound beloved were similar?

Maybe you loved the same movies, or enjoyed sports or savored fined food and wine.

After six months to two years of that “in-love” feeling you may wake to a sense of disappointment at the reality of how different he really is.

You may relax when things are tidy, he may feel piles are the best way to organize things.  He may love parties and you may need more time just for the two of you.

Marital maturity means gracefully accepting that your partner idiosyncrasies and loving her because she’s yours.
