i was talking to a close friend of mine tonight and he was telling me about how he had made big mistakes with his first wife because he admitted he felt that if he provided for her, that that was enough! He felt that he could stay out as long as he wanted, spend as he pleases and come and go anywhere he wanted because he was convinced that he was the man of the house. In a weary voice, heshamefully admitted that he knew that he had driven his relationship into the ground because of that mentality. He felt that he had failed her and his family because of it.
Needless to say, he told me that he was now in a new relationship in where he changed how he perceived relationships and shifted his thinking into one of appreciation and admiration for your spouse and not the latter. He now knew that true love meant so much more than thinking that all we have to do is provide materialistic needs- instead we also need to provide emotional, sexual, psychological, and spiritual support! This is real everlasting Love!
Love is why a relationship endures and perseveres all! Love is why I know my Love Joanne continues to smile and keep our family strong!
