"You are a great wife." (Love sees clearly)
"That's because you're the perfect husband." (Love is blind)
I have wondered for a couple of decades now, what makes for the best spouse? And yesterday I figured it out, I think, with some help from Fr. Dwight Longenecker, author and blogger. In one of his books I remember a line like this about saints:
A saint is someone who let God make him into everything God intended for him to be.
Which I have adjusted to:
The best spouse is one that most helps you to let God make you all He intended for you to be.
Which is a good working definition in my household.
Other definitions are welcome.
