Yes, love can last forever, but people expect passion to last also, and it just won't. If you're thinking about a permanent relationship, make sure your love interest can also fill the slot of being your best friend. Then you'll have it all!
No... It just don't exist any more, this day an age people find it to easy to just walk away instead of honoring the comminment they made to their partner& working on any problems or issues in their marriage/relationship... I thought I found my soulmate 26yrs ago 22yrs married ... She woke up one morning , said I don't love you anymore... Just broke my heart ,50 yrs old three kids, sorry but lost all hope in true love
Absolutely. Problem is, people choose bad matches for bad reasons - impatient singles, family/friends pressure, loneliness, financial security. Understandably things fall apart. A good relationship trusts that no matter what happens, & if you both change (& many do) that you love, like & respect each other enough to circle back & keep trying. People are not perfect, esp together. The willingness to overlook each other's flaws, within reason, & forgiving makes love work. But don't rely on that magic "chemical reaction" you first had together to solve all problems. Making the effort to say, "I'm sorry" & working together to be two better people makes one great couple. Also, love is usu. stronger when a couple's core values are the same - religion, money/finance, future goals - esp. children. It can be exciting dating someone different from ourselves, but living together or marrying? Bad idea. Someone once said true love is, "Being alike enough to get along & be happy, but different enough to stay interested in each other for the long haul." Agree!
