Character is what happens when the lights are out and no one sees what you are doing. Certainly, a strong marriage relationship requires two persons who have open trust and vibrant character.
Another related trait is forgiveness when the character is lacking on one part of the relationship.
You can always seek negative problems, but rise above the negative and seek the best in your spouse.
Our motto is "The Best Is Yet To Be!!!" in your marriage. We coach couples to develop many skills which create a thriving relationship no matter the setbacks. This is not a fantasy, any couple can endure setbacks to eventually instill new skills and develop their marriage.
Each life-partner will have setbacks to their personal life. The partner with the active character at the time, must seek what is their spouse's best interest and shine a huge light on their best qualities.
Thanks for the question!
