” A romantic and sexual long-term committed relationship with another human remains the greatest gift life can offer.” excerpt from The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work
Relationships have both costs and benefits. The greatest relationship benefit is having someone to share life’s successes and struggles. Relationships require attention and intentional behaviors that require deliberate effort- especially in our distraction filled world. You find that an investment in your relationship is an investment in yourself, your mate and the relationship as a whole. The return on this investment can also extend to your family, household, children, friends… the list is unending.
