Comment : 1) Respect

2) Communication

3) Family goals

What are the top three priorities that we need to focus on, as we work actively on sustenance and success of domestic nuptials? Communication, integrity, loyalty, clarity, consensus, financial sync, household duty shares?

Comment : In the initial stages of a relationship, I think we do go through that phase when we want every little detail about our partner, but sometimes, it comes back to bite us in the butt...and through no fault of the other person who has revealed him/herself trustingly. I think we should be content with the amount we can handle. We all have a past, why prod it and disturb it?

We don't even know the truth about ourselves--it's too complex, we change everyday. Would I love my hubby more, would our marriage be stronger, if we knew every detail of each other? Do I really want to put the relationship under a microscope? Will my commitment be stronger because of a 3 a.m. dissection? '
