Here’s a good article titled, When You’re Hooked On an Abusive Partner and Scared to Walk Away.
Back when I owned my own business I had a philosophy of recruiting employees after we hired them. You know how it is, when a company recruits you they put on their best face, they buy you lunch, buy you gifts, they tell you why they want you, etc. My idea was to keep doing that after we hired you, to let you know how much we appreciated you. This was kindness/gratitude and also good business sense: it’s hard to find good employees.
I think marriage should be the same way. Rather than thinking, “You married me, now you’re stuck with me” — which is a dangerous thought — I think it’s important to keep recruiting your marriage partner in the same way.
Just a thought.
“The best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are ... good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what have you, the right person is still going to think the Sun shines out your ass. That’s the kind of person that’s worth sticking with.”

David and I did a review with one of our other LLC business partners today (Cooper), and as reviews go, it was very simple. He has been working with David a lot, which is one reason David was there, and I'm told that his work is excellent. Customers love his speed and technical skills, and while he isn't a particularly outgoing person, I've never heard a customer say a bad thing about him.
