Well,personally speaking,i have not grown up with my father..he left home for work when i was 2 years old and my young brother was jut 1 year and 2 weeks old..we were left in the care of our lovely mother..who has been waiting for him for the past 19 years. He used to call and end us whatever we needed and we didn't really understood.But when i grew up to really understand what was really going on i really felt sorry for my parents...mostly my mother because she was a dedicated woman who stood by her man no matter what..Daddy always reminded us how he loved us and our mother every single day he called,some times i watched my mother on her knee crying when i passed he room in the late hours of the night ,when i tried to comfort her she just smiles and says she is fine,,,i know she cannot really tell me all the details but i really know how she feels...so can you really stay by your partner for really a long time and still stand ???

I could never willingly enter in such a relationship for that long. kudos to those who can deal with it but, it doesn't fit with what I wish for in a marriage/partnership.

@priscilla1234 I understand. I think already being in that situation is a whole other story and of course I'd stay in that case. Divorce is too much of a hassle anyway.

You're never really in a relationship with anyone but yourself (one of the reasons Lord Jesus Christ commands "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"). My father 'left' when I was 20-something (but--since I can't grow-up--I don't know 'the specifics of the divorce-settlements'). But my mother is STILL faithful to her promises to 'God and all those gathered here.'

Thank you so much Harry Jude..and i am really sorry to hear that my dear..most women really stick to their promises...sometimes mothers do this for their babies..they deside to get dedicated to looking after their young one......but God bless your mother

No. I was in one long term relationship - so in love - but it only lasted 3 years. I don't see myself staying in a ltr any longer than that. Although, I have had a crush on someone for almost 25 years now.
