About the Author: I’m Wayne. I’m a baker by trade, and am now working full time as an Endorsed Enrollled Nurse I have a 13 year old son from a previous relationship, and am happily married to the most beautiful woman God ever put breath into. Together we have a 19 month old baby boy, and are expecting again in May. My wife and kids are my world. I often wonder what did I do in order to be blessed with such an amazing family. I do thank God each and every day.
I believe there are 4 main factors in a healthy relationship.
LOVE, TRUST, RESPECT, AND SEX.
This is a practical exercise!
Get a pen and paper
Now, on one line, write the word LOVE
On the 3rd line, write the word RESPECT
on the 4th line, Write the word SEX
What you now see, is 2 people, trapped inside a square, with each wall, representing what I believe to be the 4 most important things in a relationship. (note the word TRAPPED).
Now, if any one of these 4 factors fade/evaporate, the walls fall down, leaving a doorway for either person to exit, or anyone else to come inside.I am lucky. My wife and I have these 4 things.
I hope you all have these things in your relationships.
Its the key to a very healthy, everlasting Marriage.
