Astrology can provide insight as well as marriage insurance – a map to the mine field, as it were. While no one gets married thinking “This will never last,” sadly statistics tell us otherwise. Though no one is suggesting a happily committed couple ought not walk down the isle, the truth is that even the best of relationships can be like a mine field in spring – all covered with daisies and violets on the surface, but fraught with real danger if you don’t know where the mines are.
Examples would be:
* The need for closeness versus the need for “space.”
* Styles of affection, verbal, touching, gift giving etc.”
* Preferred vacations, activities, near vs. far, etc…

* Jealousy vs. security
* Kids & child bearing
