As husbands and wives we must remember what brought us together, and what we bring to the table. That’s why it’s important to remember that…
2. You and Your Wife are Incompatible.
By that I do not mean that you do not work well together. What I mean is that the two of you are different—and not just in the obvious ways.
Each of you brings to your marriage different strengths and weaknesses, different likes and dislikes. There are things that each of you will be good at, and there are things that you will be poor at.
The question is, how do you view these differences? And there are two basic answers.
You can look at the differences as pain points.
What I mean is that you can look at the differences and your own pet peeves and let everything they say and do bother you. You can let the little things overcome you and frustrate you to the point that you wonder why you even got married. You can choose to let the differences separate you, or…
You can look at the differences as a source of strength.
Yes! Besides being a never-ending source of interest, you can look at your differences as something that will add strength and spice to your life. Strength in that two people with different strengths are stronger than one, and spice in that having someone with different tastes will make you try something you may not have tried before.
Instead of letting differences and incompatibilities in your life be a source of contention, we need to see those differences as a gift from God to make the two better equipped to handle life together. Embrace them rather than turn from them.
