Avoid Double Standards

On Wednesdays I post a practical wisdom thought or suggestion on Marriage, Parenting, or Life.

One absolutely essential goal for every relationship is to Avoid Double Standards.  In marriage, there can be double standards with meeting each other’s needs, spending habits, household roles, time with family, etc.  In society, there are double standards with certain laws, in the media, with valuing and respecting others, etc.

The objective for overcoming double standards is Mutual Reciprocity.  Meaning, if you were to reverse roles, both parties would be content and happy because equality reigns supreme. 

Another way to overcome double standards is to put yourself in the other person’s shoes and assess how you would feel.  If you would be happy then there is probably no double standard and mutual reciprocity exists in that aspect of the relationship.

TODAY:  Assess if there are any Double Standards in your significant relationships.  Then, determine if you are the one who needs to make the appropriate improvements in order to create a fair, equal, and balanced relationship.
