Recognize that most people are thinking of themselves most of the time. Seeing this about your spouse will save you a lot of disappointment. Seeing this about yourself will help you realize what your spouse has to put up with.
How many times have you launched into the intricacies of the all-consuming project your working on, only to take a breath and have your spouse change the subject to whatever all-consuming task he or she is working on? Then when your spouse pauses, you go back to talking about your thing, slightly annoyed that he or she changed the subject. But no matter how important and interesting you think your project is, the world still doesn’t revolve around you. If anything, it revolves around the two of you as a pair. Access your inner child, go back to kindergarten, and learn how to share.

The Most Reverend Joseph E. Kurtz
Archbishop of Louisville, Kentucky
Please consider the attached petition during the deliberations of the Synod on the Family. We are 1,700 individuals from across the United States and around the world. We come from diverse theological perspectives: we are Catholics, Protestants of many denominations, Latter Day Saints, Jews, and people of no faith at all. We are united in our appreciation of the Roman Catholic Church for its clarity about the great moral issues of our time.
We have no particular proposals to suggest. We only ask that the Synod Fathers remember the Victims of the Sexual Revolution. Whatever you decide to do, please, remember the millions of people who have been harmed by NOT following Catholic teaching.
We affirm: The ancient teaching of the Church has been right all along.
Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D.

Give the relationship time for reciprocity to develop. People are unable to give much for a variety of reasons. Sometimes one person is sick or preoccupied. These times pass.
All things, relationships included, ebb and flow with the tides. You can’t be perfect and fully on top of your game at all times, and neither can your spouse. Recognize that. Do what you can, and hope that your efforts will bear fruit.
