Long Lasting Relationships

Death ends a life, not a relationship.” - Robert Benchley

Relationships whether friendship, marriage or relationship by birth are always an important part of life. Learn what makes them tick, why they sometimes go wrong, what one can do about it, and why they are so precious.

“Love lasts when the relationship comes first.”

"Love endures only when the lovers love many things together and not merely each other." - Walter Lippmann

Growth in a relationship should come from; doing things together, allowing things to happen, accepting them as is, and changing what you can. It involves sharing and caring.

"Assumptions are the termites of relationships." - Henry Winkler

What do you think are essential in building lasting relationships?

Hi Sam, Great post. Spending more time with your loved one and good communications will help. This days, people in pursuit of career, power, status etc, they tend to neglect their loved one. :)

Hi Sam...this one makes me work my brain,which is good.I think that when building healthy relationships,one needs honesty,as much as possible.Also,perhaps the ability to just be oneself,and not put up barriers and falseness,otherwise people wont be communicating with one on a genuine basis,but only with a facade.A bit of healthy respect and decency and also the ability to laugh at each other and with each other too...
Have a wonderful day ,you and your family... :)

Hi Sam,
I love this post. I found a fulfilling and lasting relationship when I married my best friend. We respect each others space to be individuals. We speak with respect to one another and have discussions and not arguments.

I am very grateful that God has blessed me with such a wonderful soul to grow with.

Have a great weekend,Sam.

I strongly believe in the quotes mentioned in your posts by Walter Lippmann and Henry Winkler.

It is also important to do things together, allow things to happen, accept them as is, and change what you can.

I believe in the magic of the word, "Sorry" as well. :-)

Warm regards
