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...
if its real we can only hope for it to last but no one can say it will for sure
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!

Yes.. if you work hard to sustain it. It involves continuous makeover!
