Are compromises in marriage an indication of a bad marriage?
If a situation in marriage calls for a compromise, it indicates to me that either the wife or husband or both were not paying attention to the content of each others conversations when they were dating, or one of them or both were lying to each other.
The idea behind a date is to get to know each other. If you say you’re a health nut and you want a family that lives an organic lifestyle, then you’re expected to act accordingly. If you present yourself on dates as a thin, fit, well groomed, nicely dressed individual, then you’re expected to remain the same.
The only reason you have to compromise (if you want to) is because instead of being a health nut, your spouse ends up eating and feeding your kids junk food instead of organic, and instead of remaining thin, fit, your spouse is fat. Your spouse said she or he wants the kids home-schooled, but in marriage, he or she wants them sent to public school.
In my opinion, if you’re in a situation where there needs to be a compromise, you’re basically a victim of fraud. The marriage is a sham and was built on a dishonest foundation. Compromising will only make you more depressed.
