A loving relationship can be an oasis in uncertain times, but nurturing it requires attention, honesty, openness, vulnerability, and gratitude.

Thank you for saying this. It's incredibly difficult for both spouses. Neither of us are villains, we are born into and trapped inside a system that we aren't even aware of until it's too late. Nobody makes mistakes on purpose; we don't know we made a mistake until afterwards. I don't really like to call it a mistake, either; we believed what we were told and what we saw when we were too young to question it.
