Knowing you are with the right partner

We all know that couple that feels like they shouldn’t be together, but yet they are perfect for each other. 

We all know that couple that feels like they shouldn’t be together, but yet they are perfect for each other.  On the flipside, there is usually at least one couple that you’ve known that you think is going to be together forever and ends up on the train to Splitsville.  Then there might be that couple that stays together because they don’t know what else to do.

There are a lot of ways to tell if your relationship is the one that you should be in.  Of course, we are making generalities and don’t know the exact circumstances of your relationship, but there are those that have been married for a long time that have shared the different things that are important and can give you excellent guidelines on your relationship.

Once of the biggest comments from a lot of couples that have been married for a long time is that you have to accept the person that you married for who they are.  That includes their faults.  Elisa Sheronas has been married for over 50 years and told Women’s Health Magazine, “My husband, and I came from polar opposite backgrounds. He was used to a ‘proper’ family, where members were not very involved with one another, while I came from a big, Italian family who were not at all shy about getting involved and giving opinions. He always accepted me with the baggage I came with. When I look at my husband today, I see the same guy I fell in love with 53 years ago.”

When asked about what’s important to her, Nancy Hughes talked about the importance of having similar goals and values saying “He doesn’t fold the bath towels over the rod like I fold them, but that’s not important. Too many people expect perfection from their spouse, but people aren’t perfect. The fact that we wanted the same things out of life was the sign to me that we were meant to be.”  With 41 years of marriage behind her, that’s the kind of advice we all could learn from.

Whether it’s supporting each other’s strange hobbies, travelling for long periods of time without wanting a divorce, and doing little things for each other to make sure that you let each other know that you appreciate them.

    My wife and I have been married 44 years this February. Although our relationship has changed; our daughter says we are. “More like people who share a house ….”, we get on well and look like staying together until the first of us returns to the dark expanse.

    I consider myself very fortunate to have married so successfully and to have found a genuine whole-life partner. Only yesterday my wife told me she was glad she married a person who is tidy, clean and doesn’t leave stuff everywhere.
    We lived together for six months before we married and by then had decided we had what it takes for a life-long marriage. I guess we have similar values and habits which helps.

    Numbers of our friends have divorced, several are on their third marriage and I’m so relieved that we have never had to go down that path. It must be heartbreaking for all, especially their children.

    Since when does a particular way of folding bath towels constitute ‘perfection’ and presumably any other way ‘imperfection’?????????????
