If you or your partner are rather rigid in your morals and values and they differ from the other, causing conflict within the relationship. I’m thinking religion, money issues, raising children or politics here. These issues can be deal breakers.
It might also be tough when your spouse has morals and values, that are not of the highest integrity. What if your partner is okay to scam/cheat a system to get money, because she believes the system to be corrupt – so why not get a share? Ethically, how does that sit with you?
Knowing Who You Are
Your morals, what you consider to be right; and your values that guide you to purposeful action; these traits are the compass of your life.

Hopefully, You’re On The Same Page
If not, can you respect the choices and actions of each other? If one of you believes in God, and the other is an atheist – hopefully a mutual respect can be found.
Let there be a curiosity of each other’s beliefs, views or opinions. This curiosity opens up exploratory conversation that will always result in a deepening of understanding of each other.
Mutual Respect, Curiosity and Acceptance
Hopefully, as a couple you share the traits of mutual respect, curiosity and acceptance so you don’t have to compromise your morals and values. It is a sticky place to be, if fundamentally your values and moral compasses don’t point in the same direction.
