Enriching your friendship in a special relationship is the ultimate consummation to make it last. Have you ever wondered about the factors that give the perfect essence to married life? That would be unconditional love and respect. They hold the key to a successful love affair.
50/50 – Halfway
A secured marriage is the work of both spouses participating to obtain a healthy relationship.
A balance simultaneously with all involved ultimately can happen. An imbalance occurs when looking at what the other person is or is not doing. Some look at marriage as 50/50, step up to the plate, and meet me halfway, every time, and all the time. If it were that simple, the divorce rate would be much lower.
The focus must be on “what can I do better.” That’s when 100% of self will show up and have faith that the rest will catch up. A better marriage is a by-product of a better you.
Waiting on Results
A few things to give attention to are patience and love of truth. When waiting patiently for change to come, it can be challenging when results are wanted immediately. However, there is a purpose and process for everything and every step.
Love of truth to be generous without expectations and giving because you want to regardless of the faults witnessed. It is called agape’ love—unconditional love toward the one chosen to spend life with. Pay attention to body language, whispering and complaining, and expressions of sarcasm. It just may hurt the other person.
Put a little faith in your spouse and marriage. It could be the moment of real change happening to enrich your friendship.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 1 Cor 13:6
