In some relationship, sometimes people are never feel enough. Temptations such as pretty woman in your office (for men), or some rich-handsome man (for women) could make us forget about what we've fight for in our relationship with our spouse. It means, that human always try to having what they want, while they are not realize that they should wanting what they have. But then again, it's a human nature. What do you think about yourself? have you wanting you have, rather than having what you want? Or you think you are disagree with it?

you have presented a great dilemma for those involved in exclusive relationships. i think there is always a temptation to seek new experience and be attracted to fresh faces and encounters. however, the bond of commitment between partners is, to my mind, stronger than any temptation that will come. many relationships surpass and survive turmoils in the relationships. and i salute them.

Hi there mensab,,, thanks for the comments,,, Yup, i know that there's always a temptations and encounters in our relationship's life.I never say that we are strong enough with those, but it's a great things if we always realize about who we are and who is our spouse. Those temptations would be nothing, and we can continue the rest of our life,,,

I must agree with you that there are some people who can't feel satisfied with what they have already. They tend to ask for more and more. One best example for this are the rich ones. It seems like money is everything to them. We couldn't blame them for being like that but my question is, are they really happy? Do they really feel contentment by having big amounts of money? Is money the most important for them? :) Just wondering. Personally, I don't have much to brag about. But I'm making the best with what I have. Small things make me happy, though. :)

hi there jdex_143, nice to know you,,, I do agree that this thing often happened to some rich people, that usually have less act of value for things that valuable for other people. And in some way, we can't measure their happiness, because with all the money they've got, they can't set their own barriers about what could make them happy. So, maybe trying to put a value of our life, is one of the way to satisfied about what we've already had, not what we wanted.

Temptation is everywhere. In a relationship,being faithful is the key to surpass whatever temptation is laid before thy eyes. Some people claims they are weak and tempted...and says it's human nature. Maybe,it's human nature,but why some people are able to fight that temptation and remains faithful?-does it mean those strong ones are not humans? So,it's an individual choice and behavior...not human nature. jaiho®

hehehe,,, so agree with your opinions,,, temptation, i think, is a condition when there's unnecesarry thing that we think should do/get, with a strong feelings which makes us pulled over to do/get that. And it only could defeated by our own will. So, it's not about are we human or not, but it's like you said, that it's only an individual choice and behaviour. Now, as a human, don't you think we deserve to have a great individual and behaviour?? Now that's the point of this discussion, to get a better individual and behavioural things in life.

I do agree and I am glad I am not like that and satisfied with what I have. Unless maybe someone is unreasonably doing that to me because I'd rather have no one than have someone who is not satisfied with me.

it's good for you if you are like what you said. And word satisfied, is a relative things which every human have their own measurements. So, don't blame yourself if they were not satisfied with you, it's totally their problems. This case. is the same things like having what you want. Sometime we just have to understand our friends and accept them with what they are. That's a real friend.

I think that it's natural to want some things. However, I think that being happy with what you've got is the key. It can get depressing to always be wanting and wanting. There are just some things in life that we can't have and once we get over that fact then I believe the door for true happiness and contentment opens.

I'm pretty happy with my husband. He is not my ideal man before (cause we tend to expect too much and be unrealistic) but now I can say he is more than my ideal since his traits are far better than what I have hoped for. He is not the tallest or the richest (I'm referring to money) among guys but he has a big heart. So I'm glad that I didn't get what I want cause I've got someone far better.
