Thank you for posting, I really like the article.  He made some great points (as I would assume a good marriage therapist would!).  I completely agree, I don’t mind “losing,” because my Fiance is the kind of person who makes me feel like even when I’m losing, I’m winning with him, with life, with anything. 

Favorite part:  🙂 

In marriage, losing is letting go of the need to fix everything for your partner, listening to their darkest parts with a heart ache rather than a solution. It’s being even more present in the painful moments than in the good times. It’s finding ways to be humble and open, even when everything in you says that you’re right and they are wrong. It’s doing what is right and good for your spouse, even when big things need to be sacrificed, like a job, or a relationship, or an ego. It is forgiveness, quickly and voluntarily.

🙂 What an interestingly sweet twist.

It is seeking peace by accepting the healthy but crazy-making things about your partner because, you remember, those were the things you fell in love with in the first place. It is knowing that your spouse will never fully understand you, will never truly love you unconditionally—because they are a broken creature, too—and loving them to the end anyway.          

So true. It’s important to remember that the baggage they have is equally as important as our own and that we loved those things about them that may make us crazy now. *cough* Cars *cough* Darling Husband. Lol.
