How Can You Stay Motivated to Demonstrate Love and Respect When Your Spouse Isn't Responding?

A woman writes to Emerson, asking how to stay motivated to continue doing the right thing in her marriage even if her husband doesn't respond. Learn how you can stay motivated to demonstrate love and respect in your marriage, even when your spouse doesn't seem to respond, as Emerson offers advice on staying patient and dignified, without becoming a doormat or ignoring important issues.

Questions to Consider

  1. Why do we often expect our spouses to respond to us in the same way that we would respond to ourselves?
  2. How can we communicate truthfully but respectfully when we are upset with our spouse's behavior?
  3. What does it mean to choose to be loving and respectful independent of our spouse's behavior?
  4. Why is it important to be patient and not assume lack of progress when our spouse doesn't seem to respond to our efforts?
