Although I could never begin to wrap my mind around how much more difficult it would be if physical, emotional, or drug abuse were involved in my relationship, I do agree on the idea that the Bootcamp is supporting--work on yourself first. This is a notion I have spent a great deal of effort considering. And although I cannot say it has provided me all the answers, it is definitly a necessary first step.

I watched part of this special on TLC called Marriage boot camp. The premise was three high school sweetheart couples that had been married for a few years were having serious problems in their relationship. It was amazing hearing these couples' stories (physical, emotional, drug abuse etc.) and watching them transform before my eyes.
The directors of the boot camp program had a strategy that went something like this:
They believe that everyone comes into a relationship with baggage (duh!) and so when a relationship goes south, it is important to not work on the relationship...instead, work on improving YOURSELF as an individual.
