Lovers expect that they mean it when they undertake to love, respect and appreciate the other.
Do not take each other for granted, ignore the marriage or consistently allocate too much of your time and energy on other things and people. Doing so may well break the marriage. Bear in mind every waking hour what’s really significant in your life, regardless of the issues – trust in a marriage, and keep your priorities clear. Keep your partner and your marriage a top priority and not an option.
