My wife is a psychotherapist, and drags me off to all sorts of bo-- -er
interesting seminars and talks.
One sentence spoken at one of those seminars struck me as basically
sound, I try to live by it, and offer it to you and all as advice:
Couples that stay together have 4 or more good experiences together for
every bad experience. You will now see, how good an idea it is to bring
flowers after a quarrel or a fight. Forget whose fault it is, just make
sure there are enough good experiences together!
Cheers, Finn Hammer
