3. Communicate & Compromise

This is an obvious part of marriage. However, it can often be the hardest part. Since each individual thinks so differently, you need to remember to be open and honest with each other in a positive and respectful way. When you talk to your spouse, try to build them up with your words. Tell them what you want and need from your relationship and then truly listen when they relate their needs! Then try to fulfill them, of course. The more you talk, the easier it becomes to understand each other and how you can meet your spouse’s needs.
Pillow Talk is a fun way to open the doors to amazing communication! For some reason your spouse can connect the best when laying in bed, cuddling and talking about life!

As you are communicating, remember to never keep score and even when you are upset or having a disagreement be kind and respectful.

If you work on making yourself more lovable then your spouse will have an easier time showing you the love that you desire. Hopefully, it will have a domino effect. As your spouse sees you reaching your goals, they’ll likely be motivated to do the same!
