    In this world, thats the ideal, but not the reality for most people..Everything unlike love shows up in relationships! The secret is not to have expectations. There are relationships that over the long term, have been successful, but it takes alot of forgiveness, honesty, and good communication, for them to work..The most important thing, is to love one another..and to give each other freedom, without jealousy or control..Trust is important...

    Yes It definitely IS! The secret to making it last , is to always remember why you fell in love in the first place. The biggest mistaken is trying to change the other person!

    If they love you and you love them there will be compromises. Both of you will find that a lot of learning about each other is not only necessary but vital!

    Keep working at it  throughout all the various stages of the life you both share and it will flourish and grow stronger!
    Is it easy?  NO!
    Is it worth it? YES!
    How do I Know?
    I am married to the same lovely woman who married me 28years ago!

    i guess i am a little jaded, but, i think only the strong and stubborn ones survive in a marriage.  and it takes two.  I was both strong and stubborn until i realized, this was not where i was supposed to be.  good question.
