Despite the fact that your marriage was on the edge of falling apart, you did all in your power to try to salvage it. You attempted to connect with your spouse by throwing tantrums at them, reading books and going to seminars on how to rescue your family, and even trying to take relationship classes. All of these things were in an effort to save your family. Conversations were held from the heart with the intention of falling in love with one’s partner all over again. Additionally, there was a desire to show thanks for the experiences of the past and to make good adjustments in one’s life.
