Ah, you have your finger on the pulse and state it clearly. Life, especially these days, is incredibly challenging, on just about every level. But in a marriage, because it is precisely a team, these things can be handled and overcome, together. Whether standing hand-in-hand, back-to-back or facing forward, as the need demands, making your partner the most important person and thing in your life, is key, I agree. Thanks for posting, and Happy New Year.
