As a young bride, I had always thought that squeezing the toothpaste was a non-issue in marriage. After all, the paste will come out and we will still brush our teeth. So, I thought I preferred the 'middle-squeeze" technique while my husband preferred the "bottom-up" method. I didn't realize how this had been annoying my husband until one morning, he quietly brought it up.

" Honey, I have observed that you like pressing this tube anyhow and I don't like it. press it from the bottom please" he explained.


At first, I wanted to laugh but I didn't want to be disrespectful, but I was wondering why how I used to press the tube is a problem. I wanted to suggest using our different toothpaste but my husband that I know so well will never succumb to that. So, the only thing I could do was to apologize to him, and I promised to adapt to the " bottom-up" method.

I did adjust quickly to avoid unnecessary issues but one very important thing I realized is that this was a minor issue, but it could have become a big problem if I was not willing to compromise. There will be situations in marriage that will require your compromise. This is one of the realities of marriage.
