Like I said, I am against divorce system, I do not let and try to find divorce and strength from the bottom husband and wife and I do not know from making a lot of progress there. American system, littered landscape of broken marriage and broken relationship, it is really sad. It will become a very lonely country. There are times reported that 51% of all women have live alone. Those are frightening statistics that 51% of women now say that they would rather be on their own than with a man. It means that they are really giving up on love. I live my own life, I mean I have tried this, it has not worked out. I only got harder from a relationship. Let us say, a couple having made love in the air, which is very common. One of the three American couples of at the time. So, most people would tell you, “Oh, got a hotel for living.” buy sexy lingerie “. Well, what if you are not even motivated to do that. Or what if that is just going to the motions, I mean what I do is, I look at the erotic mind, and how a man could be in bed with a naked woman who is his wife and not feel excited. What change in his mind and his view and his perception of her? And if we could all perfect to its original conditions, we can restore the attraction even they never got to hook. I has been counseling a husband and wife and I said to his wife, “Be nice to your husband”, speak to him respectfully because she always yells at him and puts him downs. And he said, “No way, I am not going to do that.” Until he treats me better. I said, aside from the fact that if you both going to wait for the other to start, this man is just going to disintegrate. He said, “Are you telling me you only do the right thing if someone gives you an incentive?”, “are you not suppose to do the right thing no matter what, even if it has no effect. Even if he does not deserve it, it is not for him. It is for you. You want to be a good person, do not you? You are not becoming good for him. Do not let him make you into a person that you do not want to be.
