Relationships take two people, and if you agreed on everything, one of you would be unnecessary. So you’re going to have conflicting desires. But that’s not the problem; the problem is that one person’s desires can’t always win and so someone has to give every time. When you have conflicting desires, ask yourself, can I give this up? You can’t fight for everything as if they’re equal. If you both feel strongly about something, find out what’s behind it. There may be a third option that meets both needs. Listen for more wisdom from Dr. Cloud about conflicting desires in marriage.
