http://www.yahoo.com/s/1086380 Mrs. Marzec said If you promise yourself to someone, that's for life. wish i can say that to myself also. but my relationship was not that strong or maybe i gave my love to the wrong person. i know there are a lot of people who can feel the same way that tehy wish they can also say that their relationship was for life. so how about you, can you say that your relationship is for life like Mrs. Marzec? or you are still looking for the right person to have a lifetime ride with?

Beforehand, i commit myself to stay with him, but open in what may happen along the way. I understand that promising is not as easy as saying the word but you're not really mean it, and because it is a promise so it is a lifetime. I am open what may happen along the way because you can not control the relationship the way you want it to be.

Right now I'm in a strong relationship with my first love. We've been together for a year and eight months now. I'm not sure to say that the relationship will be for life, but I hope so. I love her with all my heart and I'll use even my last breath for her. I'm wanting for this relationship to last the liftime!

I will not say in touch with someone for life, because I can not predict what happens next. People can plan, but God determines. Make it the best relationship you can.

If its the best then we also need God's guidance and love. a relationship is to be planned by two people to promise to make it the best of course with God's guidance. it is makes two to make a thing alright and it takes two to tango. thanks for the response and God bless.

I am not yet committed for eternity through the bonds of the Sacrament of Marriage. But I do agree with Mrs. Marzec and I also hope that I will be able to succeed in a relationship like she did. I would like to live my life and share it with only one partner - it would make the length of the relationship more memorable and so much more full of memories together. I know that the key to such a relationship is first and foremost, to be sure before you marry. Marriage is a pact with God. I can't turn your back on a word you gave to God so I better make sure that my "yes" really means a well thought out "yes" and would stay that way forever. Next, no relationship grows on its own. Any good relationship between two people is made from trust and love shown through actually working ON that relationship. Just because people get married, doesn't mean they'll stay in love for the rest of their lives. Actually staying in love requires making sure that you do :) Thanks for the response on my discussion :)

That's the reason i am stil single now because i don't think i have met the lady whom i think and feel that i can spend the rest of my life with. I've been with a lot of failed relationships so i want the next one to last for good. I'm ready to take my future partner's shortcomings though so i think i have matured enough as a lover. The problem is, where can i meet that certain lady. I'm already 29 and i only have few more years left.

Well, if something good or even great came out of the relationship... then it was the right one... like you have your beautiful kids because you promised yourself to that someone... despite the fact that it did not work out between the two of you... but at least you have your kids whom you love and they equally love you back... There are times when i ask myself why did i ever get married... but then when i look at my daughter... i know i did the right thing...

It would be nice if all relationships were for life, but things change and things happen. You also find that some will stay in a relationship even if they are miserable because of that concept. That is something that I wouldnt do and wouldnt want anyone to do. I myself have been happily married for 25 years and together for 27 and I see us staying together for life. Not because that is what is expected thou. It is because we truly love each other and have gotten this far with give and take, forgiveness when one screwed up. Marriage is work and worth it in my opinion.

If you want my honest opinion, I think most people are getting married too early nowadays. You should really get to know someone for a few years and only then should you finally choose to make a commitment. Well, there are SOME exceptions, of course. But all in all, you have to trust your own heart.

I am married, BUT I really don't think anyone can logically say that. You never know what the future holds. Two people may start out absolutely perfect for eachother and work great together. We all change and grow on a constant basis. Some couples simply grow together. Where as, other's drift apart. Maybe it's a sad way of looking at things, but it really does give reason to why so any people just don't work out together. Maybe this disipates a bit after you grow old, but there is so much time between now and then that you just may no longer be compatable. I love my husband and hope it works out, but in many ways we have grown apart.
