As a newly married person, as much as I would love for my husband to buy into the ‘my way or the highway’ philosophy, you realize it’s all about compromising and finding some sort of middle ground that everyone can live with. -Gabrielle Union

Even though in To Kill a Mockingbird Scout and Atticus are definitely not married this quote relates to a particular part of the book. Atticus makes a compromise with Scout that if she goes back to school they will both get to keep reading every night together.The second part of the quote is whats really important. “it’s all about compromising and finding some sort of middle ground that everyone can live with.” That is exactly what Atticus did with Scout. The two met in the middle and each of them got what they wanted. Atticus compromised with Scout with her going to school and Scout could still read every night with her father.
