Guest Post by Lucas & CorineMarie: In every relationship there are going to be some ups and downs. Hopefully a lot more ups than anything else. However, when conflict arises, you have to embrace fighting fair if you truly want to make progress with an issue.
Guest Post by Martine Foreman: Love is a beautiful thing and with all great things in life come some level of sacrifice, right? After all, we have to be willing to give things up if we want to receive. But how much should you give up? And even more importantly, how much should you have to sacrifice in the name of love?
