hi mylotters! Sometimes a couple having mutual romantic feelings toward each may go for what we call "Mutual Understanding" type of relationship for some reasons like afraid to commit, still resolving an issue in their, not yet ready for serious type of relationship and etc. To you mylotters, do you think this type of relationship will work? what advise could you give to couples having this kind of relationship?

hi there friend, i never been into this kind of relationship but i think it would be best to settle whatever unfinished business before getting in any relationship with or without commitment. commitment gives security to both parties and without it you are like being put hanging until such time that you both have settled things from the past. will this relationship work, again that would depend on both parties if they are willing to work it out and commit with each other. hope this helps. :)

it might work :) some people had been to that type of relationship and it worked for them. it might work for you too. maybe that will give you reason not to be afraid of committing anymore. good luck

This would depend on the couple. Every relationship has its ground rules, even married couples have their own rules that they abide by or they risk consequences. A relationship of this type can work if that is what BOTH parties want. Now if either want something different at all then it will fail for certain. It would just be a matter of time. Many people are commitment phobic and live like this their entire lives and find that they still are fulfilled.
