    Do you believe in the "seven years itch", a point that a lot of couple go through?

    It is based on the belief that many couples start to get antsy and lose interest in their significant others around the seven-year mark.

    If a couple loses interest in each other (completely) after 7 years, they havent been doing something right in their marriage. The world is pretty big, would take a lot more than 7 years to experience even half the things it has to offer.

      You made your point Link10103. Seven years isn't enough but for some couples 7 years is difinitely a deadline.

    In today's era I believe it's more like a 4 year itch! smile
    Actually I think it has a lot to do with the individuals and what phase they're in of their lives. The older an more mature a person is they are likely to have fewer  "unrealistic expectations" about what being married or in a relationship is about. They've also learned to select mates based upon traits they desire and with complete awareness. In other words they're very selective.
    Having said that oftentimes the "itch" has nothing to do with one's mate and everything to do with how the individual is feeling about her or his life.
    One of the easiest changes a person can make is to start dating a new person to renew some symbalence of "excitement" in their life. However shaking up their relationship status is only a temporary solution to a larger problem. One has to give their own life meaning and purpose to be happy regardless of whom they're with.

      I agree with you. Contentment and happiness between a couple is all what it takes to throw the itch away. However some individuals just can't cope in dealing difficult times in a relationship or marriage thus the itch pattern emerges.
