Making Decisions Within the Marriage Is The Responsibility of both spouses"
It's true, when we get married; we become one with the other, but it doesn't give one spouse the authority to make decisions without consulting with the other spouse. There are some husbands as well as some wives that want to make important decision without first, talking to or consulting with the other spouse. To do this is to cause, problems and undo strain within the marriage, because the hurt spouse that has not been consulted or kept abreast of things; will begin to feel alienated by the other spouse that left them out of the decision making process. This happen to me several times on occasions, and I can tell you from experience that it doesn't feel good at all.To be honest when something like this happens it make you feel like, your input doesn't matter in the least. I finally had to step in and make my presence known, and let them know; that I do have a say in this marriage. Sometimes, if we don't step in, they will make all the decisions, just like you're not there. This is why, we have step up and make waves, because every decision might not be a good one for you and you both have a say in the matter, whether they like it or not.
I know God put man as the head of the household, but man has an ob ligation to his other half too; to be treated equally and with respect. When we have to make decisions on matters that concerns both spouses, not just one; and if we disagree, there has to be a compromise that we both can live with. Both spouses has to be satisfied of the out come of the decision , because both spouses will have yo live with the decision. so, men and women, it will only make your spouse feel alienated and unworthy to be left out of the decision making process. When we're married it's always a two way street, it's we, not me or I ,that has to come up with a decision. We're suppose to do all things together in regards to how we're to live our lives. please remember, that marital decisions making involves both husband and wives, because if it doesn't include both spouse, that's going to cause undo trouble for the relationship. we have to remember, when we said I do.. we said it to an equal partnership and that means' in all areas of our married relationship, which includes decision making as well. Don't be selfish , make sure we include our spouses in all our decisions, so we can come up with a decision that both spouse can live with without causing confusion to the other spouse.This will at least show the spouse that you care about their input.
