Marriage is much like a menstruation – in that the flow and engagement are very cyclic. Whatever the reason, that is a fact. Men need anonymity – women need space; however, they require attention. The give and take of each party to find the right balance creates a cycle of great times, fights, and great reconsideration of choices. Sometimes, cycles are heavier and have more conflict, or it can be a string of great times never marred, until it is.
The commitment you make at the start keeps you focused – however, you have to have boundaries. It is important. Implementation of boundaries can create larger conflict but it is vital and worth the potential.
