Have you watered your plants lately?

I use the analogy a lot with couples in marriage counseling that a relationship is like a plant.  If you water it, give it proper lighting (the amount or type the plant actually needs), and fertilize it as needed, it will stay healthy and give you little to no trouble.  However, i?f you neglect the plant and expect it to take care of itself and do nothing to nurture it, it will die.  Any questions??
