Trust and respect are the emptiness and form of romance. This means that you must listen to each other with open minds and open hearts. You both need to feel valued and appreciated by each other – even for your perceived foibles and weaknesses. Foibles and weaknesses must become endearing. Having chosen each other you can now only celebrate every aspect of each other. The only way forward, for any couple, is to find more and more to love and cherish within each other.
