Fawn, I tried to comment on your blog, but it wouldn't let me since I have no google account. It has given me different options before, but I may be too tired to figure it out this time.
All I wanted to tell you is that I thought the key thing you posted was that you guys "like" each other. What I feel is often missing from marriages, relationships, or partnerships, is that people both love each other AND like each other. When this exists, they are willing to compromisee, they make decisions based on how it will affect the other person, and they don't try to hurt each other's feelings.
Perhaps if you and Shawn tackle a potentially difficult situation together, you will see how you each react to the other person under trying circumstances. Take the 7 kids on an outing or vacation together, or something like that.
Either way, good luck to you.
