“Being in love never goes out of style”
One of the greatest urban myths about marriage is that it “takes two” to make your marriage work. Don’t believe it for a second! That myth has destroyed far too many marriages. Don’t let it kill yours!
This logic applies to dancing, business deals, and other activities, but simply does not apply to marriage.
Marriage is different. Marriage is not a give and take relationship, and was never designed to work like other relationships.
When you understand marriage scientifically, you realize it only takes one determined spouse to make your marriage happy and healthy. This doesn’t mean that one person becomes an abuser or abusee. It means you understand the principles of marriage and can use them effectively.

Even though it may appear like other relationships in some respects, marriage is different.

A woman walked past me in the street – I was holding my mother’s hand. At that age, everything you see is at a different level. I have no idea what she looked like but as she walked past, her perfume lingered in her wake. Even then I knew her fragrance was complex, expensive. I was intrigued. So you can imagine my delight when I came across Bois de Jasmin…
