Assumptions can cause us trouble. One of the beauties of being in a caffected relationship is that there are important things we can make assumptions about, and be assured they'll turn out as we expect. Once you leave the house that's not necessarily so. But if we treat everyone the way we treat our caffected spouse the world will be a better place. This includes the necessity of assuming the other person is making assumptions, and trying to predict what they might be so we're able to meet their expectations. In business this goes a long way toward eliminating customer disappointment and negative PR. Of course between spouses it leads to better understanding, and a more open, fulfilling relationship.
