The Elephant in the Room.
Why do we have such a huge problem with talking about whatever it is that needs to be talked about in our relationships with our friends, family, church organizations, etc.? I see time and time again people who would rather avoid addressing issues, avoid facing the truth, and avoid being their most genuine selves, instead of being open and honest about how they are feeling.
They are based on multiple variables that are constantly changing. You must also factor in the prospective, perception and priorities that each person brings to the relationship. With all of these moving parts, relationships can be a mathematical and emotional nightmare. Unfortunately, this is the challenge that is facing the modern day relationship. There is hope, but it will require you to be different. If your relationship is to be successful, you must learn to simplify the complexity.

I stop and think about my family, my friends, the work that I am blessed to do and all of the wonderful opportunities that await me on a daily basis. This helps me to stay focused and also helps me to have a more humbling spirit, which is very important to me.
A report released recently by Bowling Green State University's National Center for Marriage and Family Research revealed that the U.S. marriage rate is currently at 31.1, that means there are 31 marriages per 1,000 unmarried women. However, in 1920, the national marriage rate was 92.3.
