    You sound too good to be true. :)

    I think if everyone placed less importance on what society deemed appropriate, you would find more people with this attitude towards partnership.

    This is going to sound sappy, but love is really all one needs in life. If you have one who loves you and you love back, everything else can be dealt with. But again, I come back to my previous post; If one decides to have children, make sure it is with the right person, and that they are in it for the long term.

    For everyone's sake.

    I'd like to believe that 'all you need is love' would be true, but I don't think it is.
    I really do think there's a point, (& it will be different for every person), where love isn't enough... & it's actually sometimes that love that keeps people bound to a life of misery.
    I watched a friend of mine (RIP dude), & his girlfriend fight, break up, get back together... repeatedly over the course of 6 or 7 years, & they were both so bloody miserable... like they hated each other, & themselves, because they loved the other person & couldn't not.
    Nasty business.

    On your last point... amen.

    I think it's impossible to make one statement which will fit for all. Yet, I think that if people were less caught up with superficiality in our society, Love would at least be the most important aspect to a relationship.

    As it stands now, what one does for a living and their social standing in society takes precedence. When in my opinion, I think it shouldn't.

    There still has to be something left after "the honeymoon" (the fire has dwindled) is over though. This is typically when problems begin. To many people settle or even get talked into "lets get married, its the best thing, it will be great"

    Q: what did the man say to his accountant after the honeymoon?

    A: "I sure hope this pre-nup is ironclad."
