“You can’t always get what you want”

(Again this is one of my own thoughts)

Marriage is about compromise, not compromising your faith or yourself, but sometimes compromising what you ‘want.’ Sometimes what you want isn’t good for the other person (just for a silly example a you want a dog but your honey is allergic.) Sometimes its not good for the couple (you want a new car but don’t have that kind of money and can’t take on another loan.) We need to work together as couples to find solutions to these kinds of situations.

Sometimes this also means giving something up. If lets say you play poker every Friday and its getting in the way of quality time with your spouse. The best plan maybe to cut down to every other week or once a month so that you still get to enjoy your friends but you also get to enjoy your spouse. Its about compromise, its hard, but its worth it to not always get your way.
