Shalom Bayis needs more than just giving in.
- Being mevater is a beautiful ideal, one for which every Jew can and should strive. Marriage would be a non-stop battle if we insisted on always getting our way. Indeed, couples who can graciously and sincerely concede to the other's needs possess a master key to harmony.
- However, vatranus - or more accurately, a superficial simulation of this trait - can also mask and sometimes trigger deep and profound problems in a marriage.
- For most couples, and virtually all couples that are unhappy, giving in simply does not cover every area of conflict.
Only an angel can constantly acquiesce without feeling defeated.
- Fortunately, tools exist that can enable you to establish yourself as a separate individual whose hands are on the controls of your own emotional life. You can exist and thrive as a couple, even in a state of disagreement, even in a state of conflict, even when one of you is occasionally unhappy with the other. You and Me Equals We is about those tools and how to use them.
