You see, the whole purpose of getting married is to commit to spending the rest of your life with another person. All the days of your existence until death separates you.
It’s not just about finding someone you like. It’s about liking who you are when you are with them. People tend to bring out different sides of us.
Do they motivate us? Make us feel at peace? Does the way they dress make you want to try harder to look nice?
A rare characteristic that makes a marriage worthwhile is a shared willingness to take emotional risks that benefit both partners.
This is expressed in communication, choices and actions, among other aspects of the relationship.
Although there are a number of qualities that can contribute to the success of a marriage, mutual respect is one quality that stands out as particularly uncommon and valuable.
Mutual respect means that both partners in the marriage have a deep appreciation for each other's individuality, values, and needs.
It involves treating each other with dignity, listening to each other's opinions without judgment, and supporting each other's aspirations and goals.
Always see each other in a positive light even when times are tough. Also, great senses of humor uplift each other. Both assume the marriage is worth having.
