Marriage Versus Courtship

Question:

Will marriage end the delightful times of courtship?

Answer:

Often times things do change as relationships progress. Sometimes it is better not to tie the knot, but simply carry on in a care free manner. Below is what can happen when boredom sets in.

Here we see true love during courtship. It can have that anytime, anywhere kind of love fest that is found during periods where there is no pressure, no expectations, no strings attached.

When you add the responsibilities of maintaining a long term relationship such as marriage, the stress can often lead to arguments and tension that cannot be resolved by sex alone.

Many times, long term relationships end up becoming very flat when the excitment of new love wanes so you should carefully consider all aspects of committing to a life long relationship.

Great post. Well, I'm for marriage and am in a happy one, but I do believe you need to try the shoes on first to see how they fit. Marriage takes a lot of work to succeed. It's good to see you back. I've missed you. Have a great day. :)

I think that all relationships go in cycles, as evidenced by your wonderful pics. When one works most of the time, though, the occasional boredom should probably not be blamed on ones mate but on not having enough of ones own interests.

Being with someone long term can only work when neither partner completely loses him/herself in the other.

Unless, of course, someone is lion. :)
