We tend to be proactive in how we deal with life in general and particularly our marriage. We are both that way because of our individual personalities but having previous marriages in our pasts has also contributed to that tendency to be pro-active vs. re-active.
Being pro-active requires getting to know our spouse inside and out. We don’t become mind readers, but we are able to better anticipate how they will respond to things. More importantly, we get to know what builds them up which, in turn, makes us better spouses.
Is your marriage pro-active or re-active?
