The Marriage Box

It has taken the trial and error of multiple relationships, years of personal ups and downs, and the finding of my perfect partner to finally learn how to build and maintain love that is strong and healthy. Relationships take work, and sometimes the help or guidance of outside professionals. With Jason, I am more giving with love, sex, and adoration than I have ever been. I fight cleanly and argue productively. We have created a home free from insult and I look forward to creating a marriage full of love.

Marriage Box
Most people get married believing a myth that marriage is a beautiful box full of all the things they have longed for; companionship, intimacy, friendship, etc. The truth is that marriage at the start is an empty box. You must put something in before you can take anything out. There is no love in marriage. Love is in people. And people put love in marriage. There is no romance in marriage. You have to infuse it into your marriage. A couple must learn the art and form the habit of giving, loving, serving, praising, of keeping the box full. If you take out more than you put in, the box will be empty.
