Having a successful long term, mutually accepting, loving, respectful, connected relationship is a job, you get out of it what you put into it. Relationships don't get easier or harder with time but they do change and if each party in the relationship doesn't change/grow together, tough times will be ahead. However, the rocky sea of relational disharmony doesn’t have to be the beginning of the end. If there is a desire for open communication, understanding and patience, what was once thought to be lost can always be found.
