One of the joys of being married, is that you have someone (your spouse) that has your back. But, unfortunately I see many couples that don’t truly understand what it means to have their spouse’s back. Over the years, I have truly come to realize that my husband has my back. But, I’ve found that him having my back didn’t exactly mean what I thought it would.
Here are 2 characteristics of a spouse that truly “has your back.”
Having your back doesn’t mean that your spouse has to agree with everything you do. When your spouse has your back, they will love you enough to tell you the truth, even if it hurts. In the dvd New Year New Marriage, relationship coaches Reggie and Peachie Williams say that one of the biggest problems in marriages today is that people assume that their spouse should see every situation the way that they see it. But Reggie and Peachie shared that there is great value in seeing things differently.
“Instead of fighting about the different perspectives, understand the two together provide an even greater perspective.”
Having your back does mean that your spouse will not allow your friends, family, or even your own mother to disrespect you. When your spouse has your back, it means they will defend you and will not allow others to harm you.
