It’s a shame to see that many couples don’t have a fighting chance of making their marriage work because of their own arrogance.
We can often see that some of the problems that couples argue about are really simple and logical to solve. But because no one wants to back down from an argument or own up to their mistake, the environment at home just keeps deteriorating.
Unfortunately many people don’t see how arrogant and proud they are, and think that their partners are to blame for most of the relationship’s problems. To prove this, just ask most couples who in the relationship has the highest percentage of improvement to do so the relationship can work, and almost every single time the husband will blame the wife and vice versa.
It’s like trying to remove a blindfold from someone’s eyes, but they are holding onto it with all the strength they have.
I am sure you have tried explaining someone really obvious to someone, but even though the person has the capacity to understand it, they are not really making the effort. This is exactly the case with someone who has the tools to save their marriage, but lets their arrogance and the unwillingness to change get in the way.
For this reason we have couples who live under the same roof but because they are too angry at each other to talk, they text (believe it or not, this happens). It’s almost how children behave; right?
It’s important you always try to understand your partner. Their point of view may be different from yours, but it doesn’t mean that they are wrong. When you don’t even want to listen or understand your partner, they feel ignored and alone. This unhappiness always spills over to you because you are one flesh.
There is usually always a way of saving a marriage. The question is: Do you want it enough to let go of your blind arrogance?
