It’s not as simple as I once thought to live with someone and share everything with them, then don’t get me wrong, I absolutely prefer being married. My husband is a wonderful man, and he is the most loving husband in the entire world. Marriage takes work, and it takes self-sacrifice which is something that everyone don’t understand nowadays. One area that my husband and I have had to compromise in is the temperature the two of us prefer the family room to be. I grew up in a beach house where the beach house was constantly kept cold. My husband, on the other hand, didn’t have air conditioning growing up, so he was used to a genuinely sizzling beach house and especially a genuinely sizzling family room since it was on the third floor. He prefers it when the family room is easily warm. He sleeps the best that way, but I can’t sleep at all when it’s as sizzling as he prefers it to be. When the two of us were first married I bought an cooling system and put it in the family room. He had to turn it off within just an hour or so because it was too cold in the room for him to sleep. We have had to do a lot of compromising to find the perfect temperature for our family room. We have found that if I turn on the cooling system a couple hours before I go to bed and turn it off when I absolutely get into bed, the room is cool enough for me to fall asleep, then by the time my husband gets beach house from work, the room is warmer, so he is able to fall asleep. Marriage is often times about loving each other and compromising for each others benefits concerning the little things of life.
