Experiencing intimacy in your relationship, believe it or not, is sometimes a result of fighting for what you believe in—even if your partner doesn’t see things the same way. Whether you butt heads about money, religion, politics, or whose turn it is to clean out the litter box, it’s a divine opportunity. No couple sees eye to eye on everything—that doesn’t mean you aren’t with your soul mate.
Having a different point of view doesn't mean you aren't still all in. The secret to a great relationship is actually in this diversity. Every difference, every conflict between two people who love each other contributes to the growth and transformation of these two people—if you can stay in the room. Having some challenges in your marriage? That could be great news. You might be on the verge of going deeper with your partner and experiencing a love you never dreamed was possible. But to get there, you have to learn to fight for intimacy.
