To see each other with fresh eyes

It may look like the other person needs to change, but an inspired spiritual perspective puts the relationship—and your spouse—into clear view.

MY HUSBAND AND I have been married for over 35 years, and anyone who is married can tell you that there are bound to be highs and lows during those years. When Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, was asked what she thought of marriage, she answered in part, "That it is often convenient, sometimes pleasant, and occasionally a love affair" (Miscellaneous Writings 1883-1896, p. 52). How true that is.

My husband and I had been married only a couple of years when I began to be filled with resentment at what I thought was his lack of consideration for me. It seemed that he was continually ignoring my needs and putting his needs first, and as a consequence I constantly felt slighted and under-appreciated.
