image when you want your partner to change

It’s not unusual to get married and think that you can change the qualities or habits your partner has that you don’t like. The truth is you can’t change someone’s personality and changing their lifelong habits may be a challenge.

So, what do you do when you want your partner to change? The best strategy might be to accept them for who they are. I found a great article about this on John Gottman’s blog and want to share it with you this week.
