Let’s be honest — most of us talk a big game about the importance of our marriage or love relationship, but when the rubber meets the road, we aren’t really putting the relationship first.
Over time, you begin to take one another for granted. You get busy and distracted with your own stuff and neglect to tune in to the needs and desires of your partner. You view the relationship as a given, something that’s just a byproduct of your connection to this other person.
But the relationship is an entity on its own. There’s you. There’s your partner. And there’s the relationship.
