This guy writes in and says how he has heard people say that successful marriages need constant work. He wants to know if you marry someone who is "right" for you, and you are "right" for them, why does "work" have to done.
Her answer was that each person in the marriage should have at least these two goals that they are "working" towards. 1) is for you to work towards perfecting yourself and 2) to except your parnter's imperfections. She said, neither goal can be reached because we are imperfect human beings, but if we are "working" on both of these things then we will be more accepting of our partners imperfections. She pointed out, that if you haven't recognized your partners imperfections before getting married, you certainly will see them shortly there after.
I wish I could have reprinted it word for word, because it did make alot of sense.
