1. Hey! When you start counting what you are doing for the other
person, you need to start counting the steps to the door. You need to get some fresh air. Marriage is about helping each other. Do what you do with a hug and a smile and your partner will reciprocate. Do what you do with a frown and a pout and that's what you will get back. I've been married to the same person a long, long, long time. What the marriage counselors won't tell you is that all that stuff about frilly underwear, etc. It's stupid. What matters is love -- and you show that by enjoying doing things for your spouse.
