A relationship is like a garden, it is expensive to maintain but very sweet and rewarding when it is well cultivated. The more time and effort you put in to nurture and nourish love in your relationship, the better the opportunity for your relationship to be healthy. Are your words and actions tearing down your partner and making him/her sick or empowering him/her to be more loving, Fidel and productive? If your relationship must be successful and fulfilling, then you must put in your best to make it succeed. You need to be a person who nourishes his/her relationship with the right nutrients needed for it to grow. The goodness of your relationship should challenge, inspire and empower others to make their relationship work well.
Relationship is responsibility. Marriage is a university of no graduation. Before you go into a marriage union, I advise you get holistically mature and be ready to give 100% of your best. For two people to be in a harmonious union, they must be able to tolerate and help each other become better. A loveless relationship is frustrating and dis-empowering. A healthy and lovely relationship is a place where love reigns supreme. This makes you feel secured and rich.
Great relationships don’t happen by accident. Real relationships have ups and downs. Those enjoying bliss in their marriages are not from moon, they are fellow humans and you can learn from them.
