Successful marriages are those in which spouses grow together despite their shortcomings, care for each other including flaws and differences, and nurture their respective strengths to hold on to the good and minimize the bad in their relationships.

What were the good qualities that drew you to each other? What flaws in your relationship or in each other that you overlooked? Can you recover the best parts of your relationship and each other that made you want to spend the rest of your lives together?

    I don’t believe there is a perfect spouse. Marriage is hard work but I truly believe that any marriage can be saved. Each person needs to be committed to open communication, willingness to accept each others flaws and work together to overcome their challenges together.

    Being honest and communicating with your spouse is essential in maintaning a quality marriage. I don’t think spouses should be ashamed to discuss an issue or they are having problems. If anything, pretended that there is no problem is the danger. In my experience, the couples that appear to be the happiest are willing to be open with one another.

    Of course, with any partenrship there are going to be times filled with tension and disagreement. I propose that it is how one decides to deal with the difficult times that build character and strengthen a partnership. I believe with love as the foundation any obstacle is manageable via compromise and compassion.
