It's rare nowadays for someone to have a long lasting relationship with someone who they still hold dearly, both romantically and as someone who they can call their best friend. But when it does happen we should sit back and learn a lesson from these two. How do they talk to one another? Do they tell each other often about how much they love the other person? How much time do they spend with one another? The chance of the ex factor coming into play is always there no matter what the case.
We can all learn from these people.We live in a society nowadays where once there is a bu in a road within a relationship, we decide to bail. We decide that we won't be able to live with this person for the long-term, because of certain quirks or habits that they have. Instead of jumping ship immediately, and being both mentally and emotionally done with the relationship right off the bat, give it a second though and see if the problem isn't something that can be worked out. You never know, you could be leaving your soulmate just because it's more convenient to find someone else instead of finding out if they are indeed the perfect match for you.
For those of us who are realistic, and realize that great relationships don't just fall into our laps, we will be awarded with a lifetime with a great partner who we can not only live our lives with, but who we will cherish and request the company of for the rest our lives. We aren't kids anymore, and we will encounter "grown up" problems and these are the types of things that can threaten a great relationship, like debt and stress, but if you are prepared and use the proper tools, it shouldn't affect you at all.
