    What keeps you in your relationship?

    I believe it is simply "love" that keeps me with my better-half. Although, quite frankly, it is the most significant form of "love" sometimes referred to agape. One which operates on the principles of selfless, sacrificial, unconditional acts...

    Relationship is based on mutual understanding, commitment, respect on the feeling of each other and most importantly avoid hurting the ego of one you love. If you really care a person and  build up  your relationship  with the base of above valuable aspects, there won't be anything which might let you go or make a fear in your  mind of losing him or her.

    People usually step in the relationship with high degree of excitement, commitment and understanding etc., as well in the beginning  but the speed of their  excitement turns slow when they take it granted that the opposite  person will not be deserting  them  even if  they  do not show much concern towards this  relationship.

    They express their regret when the relationship ends or forced to end but by the time everything goes out of their hands. They vow to show their sincere effort again but they turn up empty handed and are considered to be losers.

    When things get hard or difficult in a relationship, it is communication and both parties working in a partnership to overcome that issue that keeps me in a relationship.  If I happen to feel as though I'm not being heard or my partner/bf/spouse is not making any effort or taking any care to maintain the relationship than I communicate that. And if I still see no improvement than I opt out.

    What's keeping me in my relationship now is the love that we have for each other, and our ability to get along. I feel like I'm part of a team, instead of figuring things out on my own. We support each other, have fun together, and are open about how we feel, which builds trust. So that's why I'm staying. :-)

    Other than God being the glue that welded us and keeps us together, he was divinely sent. I look at my fiance as my perfect match.

    He makes up for my weaknesses and accentuates my strengths and I make up for his weaknesses and push his strengths.

    We get each other; he's the love of my life and my best friend.
