Keys to Strengthening Mutual Reverence

• Prize every feature of your partner's that you find endearing.
• Make "harmony" out of the many differences between you.
• Don't let your marriage be all-consuming; allow yourselves to be yourselves beyond it, too.
• Arrange for time-out signals in times of conflict.
• Help each other to heal and grow
• Enfold your whole partner, foibles and all, in your arms.
• Pleasure one another.
• Treat golden silence as an ally.
• Revisit memories of amazement and wonder.
• Turn to nature to raise your spirits.
• Spread the seeds of reverence far and wide.
