Balance in Marriage
Just like I am always striving for balance in my personal life, I realize that in the oneness of a marriage relationship there is also an effort to find balance. I have discovered a tendency that when one partner gets out of balance in a certain direction, that the spouse might have a tendency to go in the opposite direction to find that equilibrium. It is like when one parent is being really strict and mad at the kids, the other parent will want to be really nice and permissive to compensate. It isn't healthy to do but seems to be a natural phenomenon that being individually balanced can help to avoid.
