Want a Truly Happy Marriage? Dare to Disagree by Rabbi YY Jacobson

Want a Truly Happy Marriage? Dare to Disagree by Rabbi YY Jacobson

In honor of Valentine’s Day, here’s a Jewish take on the essential role of disagreement in marriage. Giving in for the sake of peace is like using a credit card. Sometimes you need to be mevater. But when you suppress your opinions and preferences too much for the sake of “peace,” you are likely to find yourself deep in debt that you’ll need to pay back! Strong, deeply-connected marriages, as Rabbi YY explains so powerfully, come about through each partner daring to disagree, and working through that disagreement to a higher place of unity and connection.
