The Dynamics Of A Dream Marriage
Defining a Dream Marriage:
A marriage where both partners' needs are totally met.
A marriage where given the opportunity, neither spouse would
choose someone else over their mate.
A life-long relationship built on commitment and trust, where the
deepest needs and desires of our lives are cherished, honored and
shared by our best friend and spouse.
