A strong relationship demands faithfulness. When we cheat on our spouse, we break a sacred trust. When we give our heart and/or our body to someone else, we give away something that belongs to our partner. And when that trust is broken, it is almost impossible to get it back again.
Selfishness is one of the greatest home wreckers that there is. Marriage is a partnership, not a dictatorship. If you live like it is your way or the highway, more often than not, they will choose the highway. We are to love others like we love ourselves, and that includes our spouse.
The words that we say or do not say are very important. If we do not communicate clearly with each other, we can be left feeling disappointed, unloved, and unknown by the person that should know us best. If we want to have a healthy relationship, we need to be open and honest with one another.
