    What You Desire Is Closer Than You Know...

    I definitely agree that husbands and wives give up much too quickly in our culture of "'throw-away" relationships.  I've seen that tendency to want to "toss in the towel" in myself...  and I don't like it. As I entered my mid-life crisis a few years...

    Disagree
