Just a last note before bed. Last week I went through a med change (I'm BP, that's how I got to this board) and every moment I was grateful to my wife for being there for me. When I was finally in so much withdrawal and so little sleep, I broke down, hysterical in the middle of the night, she held me while I cried and I really don't know how I would have gotten through it without her. And this is after she had to go to a funeral and was busy studying for a professional certification test. She said it was just "part of her wifely duties" but I think it is because she truly is the most wonderful woman in the world and I am grateful every day that she is in my life. The point of all this is that gratitude, seeing the exceptional in your partner, what makes them the special person that they are, and never losing that, is absolutely the key to a successful, long term relationship. That and communication are keys to happiness with your loved one. Whether you're together for a week or 15 years, every day with them is a gift!
