Advise on Relationship between Husband and Wife

In his book, "Life of Inner Quality" (the link opens into a pdf file) under the chapter "Human Values, Human Worth", Luangta discusses that in order for a relationship to sustain between husband and wife, the following qualities have to be present:

  1. contentment with one's belongings while not infriging on those of others
  2. fewness of wants

Husband and wife have trouble getting along with one another because they have strayed from the principles taught by the Buddha.

I find the writings to be a good read and everything is well explained by Luangta. Click on the link above and go to the chapter "Human Values, Human Worth" (you can click on the contents on the left hand side of the pdf file) to read the entire transcribed talk.
