      Hi C.V.Rajan,  excellent article. Your story is very similar to the culture of of most of the old cultures incl Malta  What bothers me is that it all seems so ideal.  Is it really like that, or is there a dark underbelly hidden under the fairy story?

      Hi MarieL,
      It is  true that quite a majority of Indians value and practice what I have written. It is also true that globalization is causing dents into this culture. Upper and elite class are most affected by the evils of  westernization.

    I think a relationship will last if the couple is willing to compromise;if they accept each other- flaws and all;if they know when to be submissive and when to be in control;if they don't set a certain standard to their relationship;if they know when to stop and listen, and if they know the word  unconditional love and blind trust. In short, if they are just willing to take a big leap and learn not to give up.

      Hello hunter sakura, I think you have it well covered.  The trick here is How is a couple attain such heights of personal maturity and development?

    Like attracts like and opposites attract divorce attorneys!
    Couples who (naturally agree) on the important things in life tend to have less arguments and are happier. Who knew?! smile
    The goal is to find someone who shares your same values, wants the same things for the relationship, naturally agrees with you on how to obtain those things, and last but not least there is a mutual depth of love and desire for one another!
    Our lives are the end result of the choices and decisions we've made.
    Each of us (chooses our own) friends, lovers, and spouse.
    Never separate your mind from your heart when making relationship decisions. The purpose of the mind is to protect the heart.
    You are responsible for your own happiness.
    Choose wisely!

    Well, for me I believe in living together and doing things together. A relationship won't last if there is no give and take. If one is always giving and one is not giving back then that is not fair. But I know that any relationship goes through tough times and good times any time and if the couple can still survive the test during their partnership then that is a good relationship. I believe if couples know how to give and take love then their relationship will last.

      Wise words indeed liesl5858.  How does one 'know how to give" love, I wonder!  Is it something we are born with or something we learn?

      I think it is a bit of both. It depends where we were born, how we were raised and how our parents taught us how to give and love. We all come from different cultures and we all were taught different things.

    Never fight. I know this seems like an impossible thing to do for most but I've found that over 27 years of marriage it really does work. I wrote a hub about it if you'd like to see it.

      Thank you Susan.  Great hub and valuable advice.  Tested tried and true.  Would it work with Southern Europeans, I wonder?  We are all rather volatile even without pistols!
      Thanks for coming by.

    I believe what makes a good love relationship is trust, loyalty and great communication and limited arguments.

      I could not agree with you more Laendra Booker.  Each of those traits is quite a challenge, don't you think?   Thank you so much for stopping by and giving us your view on this.
