Differences between husbands and wives have a greater tendency to surface the longer they are into a relationship. Contrary to the common notion of love-struck young lovers that differences will eventually disappear through the magical power of love, differences are very real especially if they exist prior to the relationship. The hope therefore that one can change the other to conform to personal expectations is quite far-fetched. This leaves couples no option but to find ways to deal with marital differences if there is any chance of saving an endangered relationship.
Our beliefs and opinions are developed by our upbringing, culture, and experiences, whether educational, religious or personal. Most married couples come from entirely different environments but even those who have more or less the same backgrounds cannot possibly agree in all aspects all the time. It is simply not possible given the human nature and the inescapable gender differences.
Short of seeking professional counseling services, spouses can still settle their differences by themselves although it would require active participation from both. The common goal is not the eradication of differences but being able to live together in harmony in spite of such differences. There is a distinction between being together because one wants to and because one has to.
Better understanding is possible only through talking and listening. Other possible options may include acceptance, providing emotional support and the determination to be a better person for one’s self and partner. Pressures in life make these differences surface but husbands and wives can work together to address them.
