When you first got married, you might have felt like you and your spouse were more attuned to each other’s needs, wants and expectations. Maybe you both were more alike at that time. Perhaps you were just more willing to bend and flex for the sake of the marriage. At some point in their marriage, usually around the “7-year itch” mark, most couples realize they’re not okay with each others’ differences that ultimately determine decisions and the way things get done in the marriage.

There are a plethora of other issues beyond this list such as knowing differences in love language, forgiveness language, enneagram numbers, personality types, etc. The point here is, couples often don’t stop to think about and talk through these issues deeply. Many conflicts and issues that occur in married life come out of these misaligned issues. This causes couples to spend all their energy cutting down weeds instead of pulling out the roots.
