Do u see ur friend, pained &wearied working a plan that seems repeatedly thwarted? Seek God WITH them &encourage them 2keep the END in view!
Whatever our reasons, our human hearts DO vote in tyrants over ourselves, whether a political or a sinful kind. Democracy is NOT our savior.

“Give me the hottest woman, a woman hotter than you in every way, and she wouldn’t excite me NEARLY as much as you do!”
Giving grace in relationshp means 1st seeing ur NEED 4grace which=humble urself, recognize ur weakness/failings so u can hv patience &peace.
Good rule in dating, fit for marriage too: Do not create expectations/demands (in ur heart/mind) that the other cannot righteously fulfill.
Be honest but loving; u can prevent a fight by identifying ur own emotional weakness &confess up front! – free ur spouse from having 2GUESS!

Husband, don’t despise ur wife’s emotional needs. But Wife? don’t “demand” all be met by ur husband – look 2Christ &build godly friendships!
