Default The 12 Traditions for Relationships

12 Traditions for Relationships

1 - Our common welfare should come first; a healthy relationship
depends upon unity.
2 - For our family or relationship purpose, there is but one ultimate
authority - a loving God as He may express Himself in our informed
family conscience. Each member is God's trusted servant and no
one governs.
3 - Two or more persons, when gathered together for mutual benefit,
may call themselves a relationship. The only basic requirements for
a good marriage or relationship are a mutual desire to be in the
relationship and a willingness to make the relationship work.
4 - Each partner should be autonomous except in matters affecting
the other partner, the family or society as a whole.
5 - Each marriage or relationship has but one primary purpose - to
serve as an expression of God's Love.
6 - A partner ought not be overly supportive spiritually, emotionally,
or physically to the marriage or relationship, lest problems of ego or
gratification divert us from the primary purpose.
7 - Each partner ought to strive to be fully self-supporting physically,
emotionally, and spiritually.
8 - Our marriage or relationship should remain a forever free, giving
relationship - one to the other. In a healthy relationship we do not
keep score.
9 - A family or relationship should be pliable in its organization but
our group conscience may appoint certain persons to serve various
functions and to be directly responsible to those they serve.
10 - A relationship should avoid heated controversy.
11 - Each partner best conveys his or her beliefs and philosophy by
attraction rather than promotion. Anonymity is a valuable asset to the
marriage or relationship.
12 - SELFLESSNESS is the spiritual foundation of our way of life as
marriage partners or friends, ever reminding us to place principles
before personalities and the main principle in a relationship is
UNSELFISHNESS. Our greatest gift is to be of help to one another
and we can't do that if we are selfish.

Love always,


I share because I care.
