Marriage: Giving It All You've Got

Apr 18, 2012 / General     

The male Zeus bug, a tiny water bug common along Australia’s east coast, hitches a ride on the female for up to a week, counting on the female to feed him and mate with him at will. That’s a bug’s life. It’s all take and no give. Sound familiar? Well, in the lives of humans there’s a law of diminishing returns when one side always gives and the other always takes. Marriage needs to be a 100%/100%, give-it-all-you’ve-got relationship. When both husband and wife try to meet each other’s needs, the marriage flourishes.
