What is Your Spouse Willing to Sacrifice for You?

Their time, money, energy or absolutely nothing at all?

We cannot do it all. We have all tried to be super people and take no help from anyone, but it is not an enviable state of living. It is also not a state of permanence; no one can be on twenty-four seven without very real burnout occurring.

One of the greatest strengths of being part of a partnership is having a person to share the weight with.

Now, the first thing you must ask you is do you have a partner or something else?

A strong marriage requires a mutual level of respect for one another’s goals. A supportive spouse will willingly make personal sacrifices to help you attain your personal goals.

Being in a committed relationship should elevate your life, not keep it at the status quo or even worse, degrade it. You should become a better version of yourself in your relationship, not someone who is simply trying to survive.

Having a partner who is reliable, trustworthy and stable is better than any ridiculous gift you could receive on some Hallmark holiday.

You need a partner who will root for you, push you and cheer for you to become the best version of yourself. You want someone who wants your success as much as you do.

Marriage is not meant to be easy, it is meant to be inspiring, challenging and uplifting, very much like life.
