An Ounce of Prevention: "What DOREEN Wishes She Knew as a Single Woman Before Marriage"
"I wish someone had told me how completely selfish I was before I got married. Everything about my single life was extremely 'I oriented'. I didn't want to see my issues and I decided that every time a relationship didn't work, it was due to something that the guy was doing; not just 'doing' but doing wrong. I'm willing to bet if I lined up all of those people, they would say that the relationship ended because there wasn't enough room for them due to all of my wants and needs. If you don't want to share or compromise or put someone else's needs ahead of your own (a lot), then stay single. Every day, marriage is a compromise."---Doreen (45)
