Sometimes I wonder if there’s a secret to having a happy marriage.
If there were a marriage secret, I bet it would be overlooking our spouse’s faults. You know, those annoying personality quirks that were humorous when we first met but now drive us crazy?
Over the years I’ve realized that if I want to enjoy my marriage, I have to keep my sense of humor and stay focused on my husband’s good qualities.
In her book, The Man You’ve Always Wanted, Paula Friedrichsen says, “Overlooking our husband’s faults means to look ‘over the top’ of them to see the person we love standing on the other side.”
So, whether my husband leaves his shirts and socks on the floor or forgets to let me know he’s working late and won’t be home for dinner, I want to choose more often to overlook his faults. Honestly, I’m hoping this might help him overlook mine too!
