I know it's such a childish thing to believe in, but I think it's better than being too pessimistic about things. Do you believe in Forever in terms of love and relationships?

Considering how many relationships fail nowadays I can see how you might think it's childish to believe that two people could find each other and continue to love each other throughout their entire lives, but I think sometimes we need to be childish. Finding someone you can be with forever, love and trust and always count on- that's something that everyone should hope for and believe in no matter how childish it may seem.

Oh exactly how I feel. With all these things happening (break-ups, divorce, lies, etc.) I find my belief in forever swaying to Yes and No.

Not so far, but that's because I have never experienced it. I believe in it as an ideal. To me it sounds more like the "I'll see you in the next life type of thing" but I know what it means. I just haven't had a forever type of guy yet, or if I thought that I did, I think I came to find that they were really full of it.

love and relationships can be forever, can not. we do not know what will happen with love and relationships. all depends on how we serve. I hope all the love and relationship can be forever.

I totally believe in forever. I believe in forever and all eternity. I hope that the guy I am with now will be my forever. I dont think it is childish at all. I think it is childish for people to get into a marriage before thinking about FOREVER. it is a VERY LONG TIME! When you marry someone it is for forever. No take backs. divorce is a huge thing these days and I dont agree with it. If you love someone enough to say forever and get married, then you love someone enough to work out your issues and make it work.

Not just to make it romantic, I believe in the concept of FOREVER love in a relationship in such a way that this is how you dedicate such vows or agreement between you and your special someone. It's so funny to say but life is full of sweet things and what we want is to make our lives easy and memorable through time.

I believe in forever. I think my relationship is going to be forever with my husband. I think some people rush to fast into a relationship not knowing if it is true love or just the begining relationship love. And that dont always last. Me and my husband was together for a year before we got married. Which is short time but I knew I was in love with him. It was diffrent from other relationships. We have been together a total of 10 years in Sept and 9 years married in Nov. We where also young and pregnant before marriage. But we love each other so much. But we also never involve friends or family in our personel life. Which of all our friends that is usually why they fall apart because they bring in the un needed opinions of friends and family. We work together on making our relationship work not on what others say. I also dont think people should marry just because they are pregnant. A child shouldnt be put through a bad relationship. They should work together to raise the child but not force thereselves to deal with marriage. I had a friend whos parents forced there selves to deal with each other through marriage just so there child would have both parents. She told me she hated her life and would have gave anything if her parents would have just split and she wouldnt haft to deal with the arguing and stuff. But I believe if you truly are meant to be together and really love each other it will last forever.

Yes I do. However, most people seem to not want to do relationships in ways that lead to forever. Instead they tend to opt for quick and easy relationships, that are just as quickly to fall apart and disappear. Unfortunately this generally causes them to be pessimistic about relationships, and they tend to continue to do more quick and easy, which again tend to fail, which leads right back to being pessimistic about it lasting forever. In short, they do things badly, which results in them believing that the bad result is the normal result. In America at least, we used to have an understanding that the best things come to those who wait and persist. Now shallow easy and fast, is the mainstream, and devastation has followed.

Forever in love in general, then yes, I do believe in that. Its what makes life worth living for and since people/humans are still existing then I think that love drives them to stay alive. But specifically on individual couples, well, that would really be up to them. It would depend on their preference or arrangement. As for me, I do believe I can love forever. My one ultimate crush lasted for almost 10 years, and that's still just a crush. If my crushes can last up to 10 years, how much more if its love?

You know, actually I don't think I really do but I don't like to be too pessimistic about it either so... I do my best not to dwell on the ends of things, relationships and instead to focus more on the moment. Now I do believe that I will love my daughter and grandsons forever. So that kind of forever I definitely believe in.

I don't believe in anything really. But I can know that I cannot remember how I started to be, so to me that means that I cannot "not" be. If you get what I mean! - Derek

I there is love then it will be forever, where you get it or loss it. But if it is attraction or affection, then it will for time being. And after sometimes it will dull out, and you will feel that it is actually a burden, last break up. If it is love then you will try you best to scarify, improve trust, respect eachother, compromise, and still if that broken then it will remain in your heart forever...

Yes, I do believe in forever. I don't believe that it's just a childish notion. I can personally understand why some people may believe or think that forever is a childish notion or something like that. I believe that it can happen, with regards to love and relationships. Every relationship needs work and is not always easy to maintain, but with work and such, forever can happen.

No, not anymore. I have learned to take it as comes. People change throughout life. Some change together, and some don't. When you don't change together, you have to let go and move on. If you are lucky, you might stay together. If you have this, you have a very special kind of love and relationship. Something that does not happen much anymore.

Yes, I do believe in 'Forever'! It is just the opposite of 'Not-never'! A notion or word of strong positivity that fills the hearts of the users with hopes, wishes and noble feelings! Thanks for this nice posting and have a nice day!

i guess there is no such thing as forever. everything has its own end. what i believe is FOREVER is GOD because He is the only one that lasts in eternity. when it comes to relationship everything has its own end even the dot. one has to die one has to live what remains are the memories that has to be cherished through out a life time.

I believe in forever in a relationship. When two souls join together its forever. Especially when its sincere and from the heart. That relationship will always be there and that person will always have a spot in the heart. When two people come together and there's a spark and that spark grows into a flame and that flame becomes eternal, it will be forever.

In terms of love and relationships, yes... they are forever. In other sense, no because nothing lasts forever. For example: happiness or sadness are temporary; some days you're happy, other days you're not. Even our life is temporary.
