this is so helpful! thank you 🙂

earthpet says:

So marriage is a job. Or you may face devastating consequences. Or you may put in all that work and STILL face devastating consequences.
I'm out. Good luck, guys.

Ian Patrick says:

Great summary!

Keenan Adcock says:

If you're like me, I like to see everything all at once so here's all 7 principles at the end of the video:

Khalid Ali says:

I think the best takeaway from this in my opinion is asking how people view their past… In this world the people we sorround with ultimately affect us and our future, therefore we must must choose the right person to be with. We can do that by asking how they view their past… an easy way to avoid a toxic relationship…

Amanda Jiang says:

“If your partner did the dishes instead of you” …. wait what?!? (I’m joking lol)

Angela J says:

I did all of these… turns out I married a man who doesn’t know who he is and lied to me a lot. To make things worse, he always put me second to everyone and everything else. Things hit the fan 3 years ago when the lies came out. Since then, it’s been nothing but more lying and stonewalling. I have felt completely alone in my marriage for the past several years. Unfortunately… There are some relationships that should not be saved.

Concepcion Ledezma says:

People of faith should not marry atheists. That would be foolish! A no-brainer here.

Janet Waring says:

Some gridlock means do not enter into marriage, believer versus atheist bodes disaster.


Smartness is important in marriage and in a relationship and I’m glad that cyberhackinggenius helped cloned my husband’s phone. I got access to all his dealings both on phone and social media without touching his phone. All I did was share my husband’s phone number with Cyberhackinggenius and I was able to read both his new and deleted messages from my phone without having to touch his phone. My husband was a cheating Narcissist and I’m glad to find out all his secrets and infidelity with the help of cyberhackinggenius. I’m here in UK and able to access my husband’s phone messages with a link on my phone even while he was away in Canada cheating on me. I got to discover that my husband who is legally married to me here in UK is also recently married to another woman in Canada and I’m finally going through a divorce with lots of evidence against him. I read all deleted and recent chats on his Whatsapp, Twitter,Facebook,Instagram messages and Skype. You can contact this great hacker “Gavin” via Gmail  (cyberhackinggenius) or text and speak to him directly on his phone and WhatsApp : +19256795146 and I hope you find peace with your heart after finding the truth.

Marriage is a scam

June Von says:

Thnk You very much, Sir! cheers!

Seth Corbin says:

how do you "vew" your past?

DD says:

1: Enhance your love map ( knowing all the details about each other lives, like favourites tv shows, current goals, what stresses each other’s out. Ask your partner’s questions to know about each other

2.Nurture your fondness and admiration

3. Turn toward each other instead of away ( giving your partner your full attention

4. Let your partner influence you : take a deep breath( listen to each other, show empathy, don’t criticize and really think about your partner’s view point

5. Solve your solvable problems: Soften your “ start up” when bringing an issue make and receive repair attempts,( when things are getting out of hands let your partner know you need to take a break, on your break soothe yourself and each other, compromise: sharing each other view point to come up with a solution that is best for you. Be tolerate of each other’s faults

6. Overcome gridlock : Accept and adapt, acknowledge, listen and show respect, come up with a temporary compromise and thank each other for sharing.

7 create shared meaning: create rituals of connection, like holiday celebrations, going out to eat, morning routine. Work toward a common goal: helping the community through volunteers work or building a house boat. ( any goal you both agree on that involves both of you

We are struggling in our 30+ marriage. I wish we had read this a long long time ago. It was recommended by our couples councilor. It really hit home for me. Hopefully, time is still on our side. It just makes sense. Ordering the book today.

Amir Bajrami says:

One partner wanting a child and the other doesn’t can only be solved one way. There is no comprise.
