You can improve any relationship using the Law of Attraction and here's why: If you are
attracting it (negative aspects of a relationship) then you've been sending out a vibration
that matched it. You may be thinking, "I didn't put it out there that I wanted negativity
between my spouse and I or that I have to work with a rude boss every day!" Well, actually
you did even without knowing it! Remember, the Law of Attraction is working all the time.
Michael Losier

The happiness that is derived from excitement is like a brilliant fire - soon it will go out. Before
we married, we never had the chance to go out to nightclubs. We only spent our nights
watching TV and chatting. Many young couples live a very exciting life when they are in love.
So, when they marry, and their lives are reduced to calmness and dullness, they will feel
impatient and will drink the bitter cup of a sad marriage.
Bruce Lee
