Love is not just about finding the right person but creating the right relationship. It’s not about how much love you have in the beginning, but how much love you build until the end. A relationship should be healthy, caring, loving, kind, upbeat, and positive. And it is impossible to do this when you don’t know how.
As Maya Angelou says, when you know better, you do better. These commandments aren’t curved in stone and they are not the be all and end all but rather just guidelines to inspire each individual forge their own version of their perfect relationship.
