A Partner is a Cheerleader.

Early in my practice, a man came for a divorce because his wife did not meet his needs. I for once kept my mouth shut and gasped, “why?” 

He said life is like a football game. My wife is very supportive when I’m doing well, but if I hit a rough patch in my career she becomes doubtful… That is the time I need a cheerleader, not to say I’m going to score, but that the game is not over, she’s with me and that she knows I am trying! As I listened, I realized that with mutual cheerleading, marriage is the wind under our sails!
