Love, respect, honesty & trust are the cornerstones for caffected couples. The ebb & flow of life's challenges can render any relationship vulnerable to storms which most couples endure. Caffected couples find ways to navigate around them, instead of through them, arriving at your harbor unscathed. Just as inspecting the sails and promptly mending them when you notice a breech in the fabric is an excellent preventive maintenance technique; taking time to share the details of your day with one another (inspecting your sails together), allows you to address issues before there's a problem. Trusting each other enough to be honest, even with the tough issues, strengthens your caffected bond.
