In the beginning some relationships on the surface seem to be very healthy, enjoyable, relaxed and blissful. Then soon enough we begin to notice each others habits - Uh oh! We often put up with these habits for a while until we then become obsessed with trying to change our partner and tricking ourselves into believing that these habits were not there before. They were always there - we were simply too impatient to take the time to learn and jumped right into the fire! Relationships, especially those of the romantic kind can be like a roller coaster ride from hell if we do not seek them out in a healthy and sensible manner. Moving in together within the first year is a common cause for heartache and pain and we can often become resentful of each other not realising that we may simply need to give our loved one a little time & breathing space. The first few years will make or break the relationship. Spending time apart is the ironic bond that brings us back so close together - closer than ever before.
Anyone can get married that is the easy part! Staying married is the life-long adventure that is yet to be endured.
