Loosing sight of the Partnership is a Common Marriage Problem
There is no polite or easy way of saying this but unless you are prepared to work as a team
then there is absolutely no point to marriage. One of the most common marriage problems that you see
is couples who have committed to each other (supposedly for life) and yet still believe that their personal freedom remains unchanged.
Marriage just isn’t like that, marriage is a two way street, couples are supposed to work together, support each other, respect
each other and resolve any problems that life might throw at them, together. Yet it’s really common for partners to just go ahead and do

or tackle a problem from a different angle. The ability to retain the marriage partnership, but still achieve, is like most common marriage problems, it just requires consideration, thought, a little effort and the ability to

many cases unfortunately prove to be very true with it being common for couples to adopt a totally inflexible approach to marriage and
marriage problems. Time after time you come across that don’t care attitude that is totally one sided and completely fixed on individual
rather than joint needs.
