I'd like to say that I tend to keep a car until it dies, but that would be a lie.  Both cars I've had in my adult life have been hit and deemed total losses.  Both were about 2 years old when I got them.   Both were paid off when hit.  So I'm forced to look for another car.   

A few weeks ago, our 2002 Honda was hit and deemed a total loss.  I turned to what I know best - the resources at the library.  And I asked a lot of people a lot of questions.

Whether we're talking about a partner or spouse, a parent, a child or a friend, it's amazing how much love you can feel for someone, and at the same time how much work the relationship takes. Emotions run high and sometimes the person you love most is the cause of stress, anger or anxiety. In every relationship, it's important to nurture not only our partner, but also ourselves.
