I read with interest (and sadness at the same time), a blog post about love and romance. The blogger wrote about his breakup with his longtime girlfriend. What saddened me about the post is their breakup after so many years of courtship. He did not elaborate on the reason for the breakup.
I have friends who also broke up after being together for many years. What about in the case of married couples? Will they break up when suddenly one morning, they realise that they no longer love each other anymore? Will they just pack up and leave? Can a relationship be that impermanent and flimsy that it can be cast aside so simply? Isn't love supposed to last? Or am I too idealistic or living in a romance novel-type of world?
I believe like anything else, nothing just drops from the sky. One must work at it, even relationships. Both parties would have to contribute to its success, don't you think? I am certainly no expert but my simple and naive mind says that for any relationship to survive, some romance is necessary. I recently stumbled upon a site, RomanceforEveryone.com, and it's a real gem of a site, I tell you. I love this site, but don't just take my word for it, check out the site for yourself. You will find lots and lots of romance tips to make any relationship last forever. Afterall, isn't love and romance supposed to last forever?
