Eli J. Finkel

In comparison with a few generations ago, the typical marriage of today is very different. Getting married isn't just about providing economic well-being. Today, the marriage relationship is about fulfilling the higher expectations of the couple, including those of personal growth, love, and individuality. It takes time, dedication, and attention to maintain such relationships. Your partner should be someone who encourages you to express yourself. Cynthia Powell was the first wife of legendary musician John Lennon, but the marriage didn't last for long because he decided to live more freely and focus on art. However, Yoko Ono, who was a contemporary artist, was what he needed in his second marriage. He could express himself freely with her encouragement, and the two developed a strong bond as partners. For a stronger relationship, learn your partner’s goals and dreams and give your support to him to achieve them.
