HAPPY CONTINUE - THE - COURTSHIP NIGHT EVERYONE!
Is your marriage a prison sentence, or an eternity of blissful and joyful opportunities? It's all in how you look at it, isn't it?
Tonight, do your favorite thing to do together. It doesn't matter what it is...just do it.
"Incompatibility is never the real reason for a divorce. It's a reason
for breakup of a dating relationship...The real reason is likely to be
that neither attended to the relationship. Perhaps one or both threw
themselves into parenting, or a job. They stopped doing the things that
they did when dating and that couples need to do to thrive as parents -
take time for conversation, talk about
how their day went or what's on their mind. Or perhaps the real love was
undermined by the inability to handle conflict.
If you get to
the point where you're delivering an ultimatum, you haven't been
maintaining your relationship properly. It's like your car stopping on
the side of the road and you say, 'It just isn't working anymore' - but
you haven't changed the oil in 10 years.
What makes people the
right mates for each other - is the willingness of both partners to be
open and vulnerable; to listen and care about each other."
