Time is the currency of relationships.  It is rarely appreciated how important this is, with couples routinely ignoring the need for investment of time and nurturing in their relationship.  The area of relationships is one of three identified by researchers that commonly suffer under stressful conditions:  Productivity, Relationships and Personal Wellbeing.  A person’s unique character structure and family background will determine how well performance in each area can be maintained.  Unfortunately, relationships often suffer most under today’s intensely stressful conditions. Don’t tell me you love me, tell me how much time you’ve got for me.
