Looking Past One's Appearance

It may seem at first that a couple agree on almost everything in their lives, but looking past the surface can open a whole new adventure for them. They might find that while they belong to the same religious group, one of them has fundamental issues and is thinking of quitting. Their partner might feel their own solid belief system is being called into question. It could cause them to open a rift within their relationship, and the pair of them must explore the issue honestly if they want to get past it.

Agreement might seem like the perfect solution, but the real world often finds couples with differences will keep their distance for at least a while. The person with the misgivings about how their background has steered them in one area of life may be struggling, and they could feel they need a partner with at least an understanding outlook. Each person in this type of relationship will need to overcome their own feelings and suppositions so they can listen carefully.

Misgivings happen all the time as people grow and learn, so they are not always permanent. The person with a fundamental adherence to their own religious beliefs may be able to put aside their own misgivings about the relationship long enough to see their partner through a difficult time. It could be a good way to strengthen the entire relationship once they have found their way together.

It is not always easy for two people with large differences to find a way to bridge the gap it can create, but those determined to listen with an open heart can find a way. A harmonious relationship is about living with all aspects of another person’s lifestyle and views, and it is about accepting them for those values.
