2. Unique Understanding #1: Understand that you two are two different persons raised under different circumstances. You have different choices and behaviors. You have different preferences and you react to same events differently. In case any of you tries to change it, this will mean you no longer want to live with the person you loved so much at a time.

3. Unique Understanding #2. All of the relationship problems manifest from the mind’s tricks. Mind uses tricks like ego, distrust, hatred, resentment etc to accomplish its activity.
