in this particular day and age. There are so many obstacles that couples must

struggle to overcome in order for their relationships to survive. Examples of such

obstacles include being unfaithful, lack of communication, the inability to

compromise and jealousy. Of the examples listed, jealousy can quite possibly be the

department, all based on the fact that ?three times she?d mentioned him.? (1595)
