Are you different enough?

You’re probably quite different from your spouse. In more than one way.

But are you different enough?

    I’m so honored and excited to have you, Lisa! You really knocked it out of the park with your post! I hope lots of people come by and check out your wise words about an area of marriage that everyone struggles to navigate.

    Well said, Lisa! The truth is that when spouses are different their relationship is more complimentary and that creates a more stable foundation that when they are symmetrical and bring similar strengths and weaknesses to the relationship. When I was still practicing marriage and family therapy, I much preferred a couple that was not too much the same because they had the best shot at more growth and change in areas they had difficulty with. Their differences also (when understood) bring a powerful dynamic to parenting as well.

    My husband and I are different in soooo many ways, but we are very much alike in some of the most important ones. Going over to read more of this post.
