The guys at work were talking about how they didn't realize until well after they were married how differently their wives think than them. The couples who accepted the differences and learned to work with compromise and understanding have strong marriages. The others...not so much.
I envy the marriages that are partnerships; sharing goals and interests. Even knowing that there must be days when they bicker and annoy each other, I'd like that kind of relationship. In the blogs I read: Compostwoman and Compostman, Rhonda and Hanno are the couples that stand out as having grown together and built something strong. It must be a relief to have someone beside you for mutual support and encouragement.
