Know Your Bottom Line (especially your X axis)

One of the most important ways you can increase your success in marriage is to choose your partner wisely. While many people slide in and through important, potentially life altering relationship transitions, it’s smarter to make decisions when they really count. If the transition in question could affect the rest of your life, you want to be making a decision, and, hopefully, a good decision.

One of the most important decisions you can make is to know your bottom line and then act on it. When it comes to commitment in love, know what is most important for you, what you seek, what you need, what you cannot accept—and let that guide your actions in who you are with and who you are willing to end up with in life.  

I discovered the following comic strip from the recommendation of one of my sons (who are very into science and technology and math). I love this one. It represents the important truth I just mentioned.
