The secret to keeping marriage alive is not in getting love; it’s in giving love. Almost every popular magazine has at least one article on keeping love alive. So, why is it so few couples seem to have found the secret? I’m convinced it’s because we concentrate on ‘getting love’ rather than ‘giving love’.

How can I make your life easier? How could I be a better wife or husband? Listen to the answers to these questions and you learn how to keep your marriage alive and vibrant.
