When you first met one another, it was like the fourth of July. The fireworks were going off inside both of you. You were so attracted to each other. He thought you were the most beautiful woman he has ever laid eyes on. She thought you were the most handsome man on the face of this earth. On your first date he brought you roses, opened the doors for you, held your hand, and gave you many gifts. He was the perfect gentleman. The two of you had so much in common. It almost seemed too good to be true. Eventually the two of you became married. This marriage seemed to be the most beautiful union ever. It seemed like the two of you were always entertaining each other. It was always something fresh happening such as; catching a movie, going for a walk on the beach shore, vacations, picnics in the park, or just a nice cozy evening at home by the fire. After a few years into the marriage you noticed that things were not the same. You don’t even look at each other the same. The both of you have become so busy with you personal lives. She is busy caring for the children while he is deeply indulged into his career. After work, he comes home and eats, then sleeps; barely noticing his wife.
