I tell my 1st grade girls that the story of the 'Frog Prince' is wrong. No matter how many times you kiss a frog they will ALWAYS be a frog.
So when dating, if you can't live the other person's warts, leave promptly and go to another lily pad. You can't love away another person's short comings. People only change things when they are motivated to change.
One must decide, before marriage, if another person's short comings are something they can live with forever.
