“We’ve been married for 14 years now, and I think there is a tendency to take one another for granted, that is a very dangerous place to be. We have a lot of friends who got married around the same time as us and are starting to fail, and I think that is a scary reminder that you have to work at everything in life, including marriage and relationships and parenting.”
