Two Become One part 1

It is a mystery how when you are married, you become ONE with your spouse! I think as you grow together and really make it your business to know your spouse and love him/her despite differences, you actually begin to understand how they feel even before they tell you. So many times I will think something and Gary will do exactly what I was thinking!

Although the marriage is the event that makes you one, it really seems more like a process that needs to be worked out day after day. It become a choice. Here are a few ways to work on really becoming one:

*Care about what your spouse cares about.

*Feel your spouse's emotions with them. Even if your spouse holds things inside, try to understand what emotions he/she is feeling and feel those emotions with them.

*Try to anticipate your spouse's needs and meet them.

*Somehow touch base with each other during the day, even if just for a minute.

Challenge: How are you one day by day? Think of ways each day to show your oneness in a tangible way.
