Marriage is meant to be for life, right?
And divorce is expensive.
It takes a toll on your health, emotions, relationships, finances and state of mind.
Here are 9 poetic reasons a couple might consider couples’ counseling first before putting themselves through the pain, cost and hassle of dissolving a marriage:

My love is like a red, red rose; maintaining two households really blows

We're guessing that most of our readers and customers may experiment at times with something spicier than normal in the sex department, but that-- like us-- you, too, probably don't keep a gigantic motorized ‘cowgirl’ sex saddle or electronic blowjob machine in your closet. Even though there are women who’ve never experienced an orgasm-- and women who most predictably can come to orgasm only with the help of something besides a partner’s body parts utilized in traditional intercourse, this NSFW article isn’t for everyone. Some readers may find any discussion of dildos and g-spot gizmos controversial. Yet more than half the world has a clitoris…and we’re gonna talk about it.
Marriages are dying every day because of couples’ failures to continue dating-- years and decades after the courtship period-- when it feels hard to make time due to our urgency addictions, modern busyness, procrastination and inertia.
Yet we MUST make time to date our significant other regularly-- especially after marriage and children. It’s important…but IT'LL NEVER BE URGENT (until and unless it becomes almost too late). You can make it easy despite a busy life by creating a date ritual with some basic pre-planning of what to do, where and how. Here's one date ritual we have to ensure quality time together, both free and costing money-- time without kids, having zero errands to run, no tasks to complete and with no agenda except enjoying one another’s company. -- Mr. and Mrs. Cubic Zirconia

Ants are thrifty and efficient, work hard and save, exercise plenty, look to the future and manage to get everything they can out of everything they’ve got. Grasshoppers prioritize rest, play and partying, and tend to spend more than they earn (eat more than they harvest). It could be because they’re lazier and more wasteful than ants, though in a judgment-free zone we’d just say they prefer to enjoy today without worries about tomorrow.So what happens when an ant (saver) marries a grasshopper (spender)?It should be pretty obvious that a marriage between the an ant and a grasshopper CAN be troublesome and MAY end badly in our opinion...unless the 2 agree to do some or all of these 9 things.

Does she sometimes read books after you do? Would she read a book if you gave it to her as a gift and said you were sure she’d like it? Or can you get your hands on a book she has in her possession and plans to read but has yet to actually start reading?
You’re gonna love doing this method to communicate a private message just for her, but not as much as she will enjoy discovering what you said-- and feeling so special at your thoughtfulness.
