Here's a good blog titled, "16 Ways I Blew My Marriage."

The only I really take exception to is #1, "Don't Hold Hands." Because I don't like to hold hands.

I enjoyed that very much, terrific perspective!

One of the more significant ones to me is that I love the idea of powering off the electronics for an hour or two in a day to have uninterrupted time together. We really don't need to be available 24/7 for the random and largely unimportant texts that come through, most of them nothing that can't wait for that hour or so. I think we and our partners deserve to have uninterrupted moments together, to be in control of technology rather than controlled by it.

I suppose I could laugh about it now, but my ex-wife got every single one of them without ever reading that blog, and a few more besides.

I've read through these. I agree with them, but I'm not sure how I blew my relationship with my SO. Afterall, it is a two-way street.
