Accept each other’s differences
Over time, the peculiarities of each spouse, which at first were attractive, can become the source of conflict. While it isn’t always easy to accept differences, doing so can make the relationship much more enriching and durable. When we recognize what makes our spouse unique we can love them most truly, for who they really are. This is what experts call “mature love.” Spouses who share this kind of love make room for each other’s different needs and interests.
