A marriage is a kind of interpersonal relationship, with rules of mutual trust and love.
Intimacy, passion and commitment are the three indispensable pillars in a healthy relationship.
Both parties must work at maintaining the marriage, constantly.
When spouses are separated, it is important for them to keep intimacy, passion and commitment alive through effective communication.
Mutual trust is a precondition in communicating and fostering a relationship between spouses.
Couples with kids should stay together because the absence of one or both parents will harm the psychological development of a child.
