    Many relationships fail because one party tries to overpower another,
    or demands too much. People in love tend to think that love will conquer
    all and their spouses will change the bad habits after marriage.
    Actually, this is not the case. There is a Chinese saying which carries
    the meaning that "It is easier to reshape a mountain or a river than
    a person's character."
    It is not easy to change. Thus, having high expectation on changing the
    spouse character will cause disappointment and unpleasantness.
    It would be less painful to change ourselves and lower our


    There is a Chinese saying which carries the meaning that "A speech will
    either prosper or ruin a nation." Many relationships break off
    because of wrong speech. When a couple is too close with each other,
    we always forget mutual respect and courtesy. We may say anything without
    considering if it would hurt the other party.
    A friend and her millionaire husband visited their construction
    site. A worker who wore a helmet saw her and shouted,"Hi, Emily!
    Remember me? We used to date in the secondary school." On the way
    home, her millionaire husband teased her, "Luckily you married me.
    Otherwise you will be the wife of a construction worker." She
    answered ,"You should appreciate that you married me. Otherwise, he
    will be the millionaire and not you."
    Frequently exchanging these remarks plants the seed for a bad


    Different people have different perception. One man's meat could be
    another man's poison. A couple bought a donkey from the market. On
    the way home,a boy commented, "Very stupid. Why neither of them ride
    on the donkey?"Upon hearing that, the husband let the wife ride on
    the donkey. He walked besides them. Later, an old man saw it and
    commented, "The husband is the head of family. How can the wife ride
    on the donkey while the husband is on foot?" Hearing this, the wife
    quickly got down and let the husband ride on the donkey.
    Further on the way home, they met an old Lady. She commented, "How
    can the man ride on the donkey but let the wife walk. He is no
    The husband thus quickly asked the wife to join him on the donkey.
    Then, they met a young man. He commented, "Poor donkey, how can you
    hold up the weight of two persons. They are cruel to you." Hearing
    that, the husband and wife immediately climbed down from the donkey
    and carried it on their shoulders.
    It seems to be the only choice left. Later, on a narrow bridge, the
    donkey was frightened and struggled. They lost their balance and fell
    into the river. You can never have everyone praise you, nor will
    everyone condemn you. Never in the past, not at present, and never will
    be in the future.
    Thus, do not be too bothered by others words if our conscience is
    relationship. It's like a broken egg - cannot be reversed.
