Love Your Actual Spouse . . . Not Your Preferred One

Two quotes from this article: Love the One You’re With by Jeremy Pierre.

Spousal resistance anchors you to reality, a reality in which God calls you to love your actual spouse, not your preferred one.

and

So if your wife laughs too easily for your taste, love her for it. If she’s more pessimistic than you prefer, minister to her fears. If your husband is quieter in social gatherings than you’d like, be grateful for it. If he has more difficulty making plans than you think reasonable, come alongside happily. In all the little spousal resistances, celebrate the privilege of loving a person, not an image.
