Unknowingly ruining the romantic possibilities in your relationship by committing these common mistakes. Learning to recognize these easy to miss mistakes is the first step in realizing you’re unwittingly working against your partner.

- it’s reasonable to expect that we find healthy ways to compromise and work out disagreements. But it is not reasonable to expect him to think like I do
- trying to discipline my heart more to assume the best about him, rather than default to assuming the worst. Assuming the best about my husband builds intimacy
