We don't fight. We used to, but we don't fight anymore. We figured that out in the beginning of our marriage and thank God we did early on.

However, we certainly disagree, we argue and from time to time, we get out of sorts with each other. Most often, we catch it early, lay it on the table, have good discussion and continue on our merry way. Usually that's the case. But sometimes, it sneaks below our radar and wreaks ha...

    Bad Habits

    We do this all the time. THINK. And it's a bad habit when it comes to relationships.

    Too often, and usually in younger people, we hear the saying "You Complete Me!" It's this false idea that someone else in your life will complete you. It's as if to say that I am less when I am single, but now that I have that special one, they are the finishing touch to make me and my life complete and whole.

    Run as far away from thinking as you can!
