What compromises should couples should make as newlyweds?
My parents have been married for 30 years. The other day, my mom told me that the biggest compromise she had to make when she and dad first got married was in giving up the desire to tell "white lies" and sugarcoat hard truths, something most of us do to avoid hurting people's feelings. My mom is a peace-oriented person (a Libra!), so I can definitely see how committing to telling the full truth and nothing but the truth, despite anxiety over hurting my dad's feelings at times, was a hard compromise for her nature. The fact they've had a 100% honesty policy in their marriage, though, is why she says they've lasted. Is there a compromise you chose to make in your marriage, and what was the pay-off?
