Forever may not be that easy anymore but ...
Every relationship starts on such high notes. See, in the first flush of love, its hard to even envision your partner being wrinkly, saggy, much heavier with fat in all the wrong places or broke because much as we like to deny it, its their looks and status that gets us all smitten. And it is during this time of flying love sparks and perfect bodies and wealth that couples make the commitment to spend the rest of your lives together. This is the time when couples believe their love will last forever.
Is forever really that easy? Can you imagine putting up with your spouse for all those years until both of you are old and still together in love? Will you be in a position to stick it out?
Our parents had the pressure to stick together. Today, its all about the amount of effort one is willing to put into making each other happy. And in this world where both spouses are independent and have very high expectations, probably not much effort goes into trying to make a relationship work. Couples are too proud to persevere; no one wants settle for less.

What are you looking for?
However, all is not lost. If you want your relationship to last, then you need to make your relationship your number one priority. You may be happy now but things can only stay on track if you don't neglect your relationship. You two need to be the most important people in each others lives ... YOU MUST BE. You need to be intimate with each other - intimate about the things you share with each other; be it money issues or deepest fears, just never stop talking.
What about your sex life? Will you desire each other later on in life as you do now? Will life's hustle and bustle shift your priorities rendering it unimportant or just a mere duty? You need to talk about what you like in bed and try (wherever you can) to explore each others fantasies. Most of all, always remember faithfulness isn't just about fidelity but also about reaffirming your love and desire for one another. Accept each other for what you are and show the other person how much he or she means to you.
Its not easy to find a good relationship. And if you have, work at it totally and it will last a lifetime. Don't take it for granted then regret later. Forever is very possible. All you have to do is to put a little effort to maintain the excitement you feel now.
