Call me a Debbie Downer or what you will, however I recently have been thinking about how most of romantic relationships never last. This just saddens me so much. I feel like, what is the point?
The VERY few couples I personally know of that have stayed together 10 years+, there has been lots of cheating and/or they barley talk or even sleep in the same bed anymore. -So to me, even if they are still together I consider this a failure as well.
I really can't think of one couple I know that has been together for a very long time, that seems truly happy. Is it boredom? Spending all of your time with the same person? The need for variety? Kids getting in the way? I've currently been with my boyfriend for 2 years. I love him, and I would love to spend my life with him.. it's just that..well realistically I'm sure for whatever reason we will end up breaking up just like the rest.
I'd like to hear more stories though. Good and bad. Tell me about your parents or grandparents that have been together for 30+ years that are happy in love. I'd love to be proven wrong. I know true love does exist... I just think it's soooo rare.
So please share your stories
