How do communication and self-sacrifice aid in compromise?
Seeking to know our spouse s preferences, and being willing to change in accord with those preferences, directs a marriage toward mutual compromise and greater intimacy, according to Eva Marie Everson in her article for MARRIAGE PARTNERSHIP. Scripture tells us to think of others as more important than ourselves and to give up our own rights for the sake of peace. These principles have tremendous implications for the marriage relationship.
What role does communication play in compromise? Why is compromise often difficult? How does our attitude affect our communication and our desire to compromise? Why should we be concerned about our spouse s preferences? How do we humbly communicate our desires to our spouse?
