Part of life is having relationships with other people. Every single one has its ups and downs, every single one. Experience has shown me that if you and your partner/spouse have different hobbies and past times, things are harder. You tend to be friends with people who have the same interests as you, but when you are married and there are no hobbies in common (or very few) it’s just harder. It takes more work than you ever think it should. But, as with training, hard work pays off. Stay committed and don’t give up. And communicate, a lot. Communication has got to be the single most important thing. The cool thing with communication is that it just isn’t talking, communication comes in many forms. We all know that actions speak louder than words. Make sure those actions are loving and caring toward the ones you love.
