last bit about what makes a great relationship,

I asked my Mother (who's in Ministry with the United Church of Canada) what she thought made a great relationship.

Her thoughts were that were good relationships (although she couldn't suggest one I could interview for my show, nor could I come up with an example of a  great marriage.)

This was her list:

-Stood the test of time

-Realized it had ups and downs and that there was no such thing as perfection.

-Comfortable with each other

-Passion and an implicit trust

-Similar values

-Similar interests

-Same core beliefs, and the comittment to spend your life with that person.

-Having both people be all they can be.

Thanks Mom. Check out her bed and breakfast at St. Lawrence B & B in Morrisburg.
