Thinking Out Loud

Ever wonder what it is that keeps some 'couples' together and others not?

Is there really anything to the saying: 'love at first sight'?

What is it that makes them persevere in a relationship?

Is it something we learn from our parents.....'learned behavior'?

Or does it have to do with our wants, needs and emotional maturity level throughout life?

I have been in a long term relationship with my husband and we have often asked what it is that keeps us 'interested' in each other. I believe that we have always had what I call 'the basics' in common........respect for each other, respect for family, love of life/nature. It also helps, I feel, that we 'see' things differently at times and don't try to push that on each other.

All relationships do not have to be long-term to make them good ones. A lot of people are 'stuck' in their situation with their partner for a number of reasons.

What do you think?
