Anything you don’t admire will depreciate. A spouse you don’t intentionally, deliberately and genuinely admire will be the reason for marital crisis. Admiration is to focus on the strengths of your spouse and your marriage.
You cannot build anything on weakness. Couples who deal only with their problems have a problem-based and focused relationship. Remind yourself always of all your partner’s admirable qualities.
You must know that the negative side of your partner does not cancel his/her positive side. Focus makes the difference. Focus on the admirable qualities of your spouse. You don’t need to understand someone before you admire them. Admire your spouse and see the best of your spouse emerge.
