It is quite obvious that there are lots of long distance relationship nowadays because of reasons that forbids them to be in each others company,one is their economic standing wherein one of the head of the family has to go abroad to earn a living, for a more greener pasture and better opportunities perhaps such circumstances is an extraordinary act of love right, unknowing of the temptations and the hindrances that maybe coming along. The possibilities of losing ones' love and affection the wreckage of the entire relation per see.So what is your point of view ,do you think it is still possible to have such kind of affair to this present time?please feel free to express your views. Thanks.

I think that the conditions underwhich a long distance relationship operates is similar in origin; regardless of the era. Whether historically or nowadays, the challenges associated with the survival of long distance relationships continue to exist; only to change its manifestations over time.. For example, given the technological advances of communication and travel, coupled with the economic challenges to be overcome when persons engage in long distnce relationships; as time progresses, I think that this type of relationship is more progressively under the threat of failure, than the traditional type of intimate relationship of its comparative, previous time period. In general, I am more inclined to think that most long distance relationships are initially formed with 'good and honorable intentions', but, over time, the outcome proves that this relationship is not genuine. For instance, while there is nothing that can suffice than to have an 'upfront, close and personal' relationship your partner, long distant relationships are usually more thwarted with fidelity issues than the traditional relationship mentioned earlier! With the worsening economic climate- causing traveling long distances to link up with their lover/partner back home often serving a major obstacle- 'substitute lovers are found and used to fill the gap; especially when lonely, vulnerable moments set it. Therefore, either partner or both of them usually try to accommodate the possibility that infidelity activities may 'creep in -even occassionally- into their 'long distance relationship space'! This is the reality for most persons participanting in this type of relationship; since, by default, the cost of travel and the necessary frequency of travel serve an major hindrances to the overcome! In conclusion, there is not enough evidence to support the claim that the long distance relationships established nowadays has a better rate of survival than those formed in any earlier era.

the beauty of long distance relationships is the distance that has the power to make it or break it. these days, with the internet and smart phones, people hardly go out of touch. given that, its very easy to not appreciate the importance of space and time in a bond and hence get very easily distracted with better baits all around. so am gonna have to say nope!

For me most of the long distance relationships nowadays don't last that much, people are afraid to lose the person they love of course but they tend to be weak and fall in love with someone else so that's just the end of the relationship. I mean it's all up to the two persons involved in the relationship to work for it and save it they should not fall for temptations and any other distractions.

I was in long distance with my husband for 3 years before we got married but we made it through. We have so much love to each other so the 'waiting' is worth. We trust each other and never in my mind though about replace him with someone else during that time. We always feel grateful and lucky to have each other so there's no reason for suspect affair. We both keep our mind positive to each other it does help a lot to go through everything when we were not together until today.

Nope. I don't think so. Because they would not know what each other is doing and what they do everyday. Maybe one or both of them have someone besides them, maybe not as lover but more of "stress" reliever. Well, the only thing that keeps a long distance relationship is that feeling of guilt thinking what those people would do if we leave them, the feeling we would feel when no one to talk to when we are home alone, or just the internet itself.

I do not know about these days, but my first love was long distance. It was not fun, and I felt that it was just a waste of time. It is hard for something to last when so far apart. That shows if it's real when it lasts through the roughness.

Yes i think they last nut they are not real. nobody can ee wthat they are doing at exact time and may be couples are lieing to them selves. they can not see each other and they do not know wthat is happening to their partner. may be people will not be so silly in the future to live thier life like that.
