You just wanted to encourage others to make the efforts it takes to get what you have.
I differ on is the concept of what people need to give: the formula is simple 100%, or all you have. The key to the success of it is that it only works if the other person is of a like mind and behavior. It doesn't matter of the people are extremely unequal in what they bring to the marriage, as long as they are both committed to giving eachother all they can, because when we know our partner is doing all they can, we can't reasonably be disappointed. The biggest problem is people entering the relationship without being completely honest with themself about what they want, need, and are willing to give.
