Everybody knows commitment is the key to a lasting relationship. But what kind of commitments?
Three commitments are necessary.
First, a commitment to stay married.
Second, a commitment to work hard for as long as it takes to make the marriage all that it can be. There are no seven easy steps, no quick fixes. Having a great marriage takes time and hard work.
And third, a commitment to obtain whatever help is needed to learn the necessary skills for marriage. A good counselor is a teacher. And don't tell me you can't afford a counselor. They're a lot cheaper than a divorce attorney.
