I Was Thinking...

The secret to having a good marriage is to understand that marriage must be total, it must be permanent, and it must be equal.-- Frank Pittman

I find that quite interesting, a lot of it was So so or Average, but I would say that is because after an EA I keep a lot more to myself as I would never allow myself to become that vulnerable again, some might call it more independent who knows? We have a good realationship, have good times together and are far more considerate of each other as human beings, we are apart a lot because of work commitments but maybe that is why I am more independent?

Will be interested to see what others feel on this?


Once was lost but now found and happily married!

I got a big red warning across the screen that said "you're screwed, sign up immediately for one of our courses, and in the meantime buy our book!!!"

Just kidding. Sorta.

I got a 2.6 on passion, but that is skewed upward by the high score for "I think of my spouse all day". Something tells me that the author assumed those were positive thoughts. If the question were worded "I think of my partner lovingly throughout the day" or "I miss my partner terribly when we are apart" then I think it would be better suited to the passion index.


Solutions? There are none. There are decisions.
