How to Have a Relationship That Will Last

Got this article from Bo Sanchez's website. Hope it will be useful for all types of relationships. Read on and take some time to ponder....

Yes, Opposites Attract - But Will The Attraction Make a Relationship Endure to The End?

Partners can differ on tastes—perhaps the woman loves Italian pasta but the man eats only adobo and paksiw. Partners can differ on the best way to spend their weekend—perhaps he likes mountain climbing but she likes answering sudoku at home. Partners can differ in personality—perhaps he likes to listen and she likes to talk.

All these differences are fine. They can complement each other.

But at the end of the day, it’s the COMMON things that will HELP hold a marriage together. Especially (1) common values, (2) common vision, and (3) common passions.

If you’re married, and you want to strengthen your marriage, then CREATE common values, common vision, and common passions together. Work on them!

And if you’re not yet married, be sure to find someone who shares with you your values, vision, and passions.

Live with purpose,
Bo Sanchez
