“Often our desire to please our wife or to keep the peace in our relationship will cause us to compromise.  While we are never to be inconsiderate of our wife’s feelings or her desires, we are to courageously follow God.  There will be times when she will not like our courage or our convictions.  She may choose to withhold affection or to lash out in anger.  There will be conflict.  In those moments you will think to yourself, ‘Surely God wants us to be at peace,’ and you may be tempted to weaken.  The courageous man will stand firm.”
