Featured Article: The Love Formula

As the years go by, without the right attention, it’s not uncommon for a marital relationship to begin to waver—as in fade or grow apart. Routine, busyness, stress, baggage, assumptions and selfishness along with a host of other complexities can easily take their toll on a once dynamic love connection. Simply, the marriage becomes less of a priority over time. Sadly, it’s too easy to take each other for granted.
