Do you agree with this? Does absence make the heart grow fonder? Is missing someone help developed the relationship?

If you're already married, it does. But for short time intervals and distances only. However, for those who are not, absence makes the heart forget - especially when you're separated by oceans and land masses. I've heard a lot of sob stories on this.

i totally agree with you. I've seen or heard couples or lovers get broke because of the long-term absence. They work or study in different places far apart. At first they just want to test their love. But non of them overcome this kind of test.Short time absence perhaps makes heart fonder. I'll never try it.

Indeed short time absence makes the heart grow fonder.

I feel it is a true statement if the love or friendship is a true one. I know it is true for me on all the ones I love and miss who are away from me . When we meet up again it will be all the much sweeter

Yes, i agree to it but only up to a point. If it is for a very big period it will start making things bad instead of good, because you will start to learn to live without him / her again, and you will not need him / her that much anymore (of course that can change back to better when he / she returns) but it is a possibility to take into account.

If you don't put the time and effort into a relationship it will not grow and for most people if they are not together they won't put the effort into it that is required to let it grow and develop. I am not saying that it can't be done i just think most of the time one party or the other will just not bother with putting the time and energy into it to make it work.

On the other hand, out of sight, out of mind. I suppose this is a good test for a relationship, that seems to be losing its 'fire'. If you miss the person, then a short separation does wonder; if you find that you have more fun without him - there's nothing much to say.

Yes it does make the heart grow fonder. For example if i am away from any of my family members then i feel a surge of love and affection for them if we come together again. It is a true saying
