7 Areas of Compatibility in Marriage

As we have counseled married couples, we have come to realize that there are seven areas that couples need to have a good degree of compatibility. They are fun, friendship, finances, family, forgiveness, future and faith. This does not mean you need to be perfectly compatible. There is no such thing as any two people syncing perfectly. If they did, one would be unnecessary. But, you do need to have a good degree of compatibility in each of these seven areas with your spouse. Take an inventory with your spouse about how well you sync in each of these categories. Discuss how you can grow closer in any of the areas that you rank low.
