Anyways, after I was temporarily "crazy" during my masters degree studies, my husband and I began reading the book: I think we had been too busy to invest in our relationship, and in the book were reminded of how much we needed to work for our relationship. I can pray for and with my youngest daughter and bless her thru prayer. Do you see yourself being with him for many years. Between kids and his work and his being asleep in the living room chair, there is no communication. In other words, eternal marriage really is worth it, I think.
