Successful relationships require diligence by all parties involved. And, take it from someone who’s been married 26 years,  it isn’t always 50/50. Sometimes it’s 70/30 and other times, it can be 100/0. That DOES’NT mean someone has to lose. No matter what the percentage breakdown, if they are  [ Read More ]
