I always believe opposite attracts. My husband is the exact opposite of me. He is the messy types and I, the neat one. He's the who is the most noisy in the house and I am the quiet one. But guess what? We are still together, facing life hand in hand.

The differences may have made our bond stronger but in many cases, unsolved differences have led to marriage failure. In my opinion, the most important thing is the way you assume the differences between you two. To make a relationship stronger, each partner must make up the differences of the other instead of pointing them out.
It's true that I sometimes feel like throwing all my husband's dirty laundries in the bin but then, even before marriage,he was the messy type and I used to love him that way. Then, why should it make a difference now?
How to deal with differences in your marriage life
1. Talk about them
Your spouse is not supposed to imagine what goes through your head. Communication is the best way to solve almost everything in a relationship. Talk about your feelings. Don't yell. Nothing will happen if you raise your voice. Instead, it may increase the misunderstandings.
2. Sort out things together.
Understand your partner's position. Communication is a two way traffic. If you want to do some talking, you have to be willing to do some listening too.
3. Ignore outside influences.
The opinion of others does not matter. Not all people are happy to see you together. Of course, well wishers will always advise you for the best but they are not in your shoes. What may seems wrong for you can be seen as right for others.
The most important of all, seal your discussions with a kiss to make sure your partner understands you are not holding any grudge against him/her.
