"If you agree with each other all the time, one of you isn't necessary." I don't remember where I heard that sage advice, but it just might set you free in your marriage.
Someone commented this week about their "middle ground" on decisions. Bravo! Cathy and I discovered early on that we needed to reach agreement on all major choices regarding our marriage and our family.
I can't tell you how many times I felt frustrated when she didn't feel good about a certain decision. I also can't remember all the times her hesitance saved us from disaster.
On the other hand, we have needed to move forward on something occasionally and my awareness of it helped Cathy see it.
You see, we need each other.
We complete each other.
We rescue each other.
And we often drive each other crazy!
How about you?
