I've always wondered about this. I'm sure it could be argued that my parents separating when I was eight years old had something to do with my somewhat warped view of relationships. They're both remarried, and both unhappy a lot of the time in their own way in these second marriages.

I know that people generally go into relationships...the serious ones...with the intention of being 'together forever.'

I've also seen how rare it is for it to actually happen that way.

I've always been more the type to say that I'd be with someone until I (or they)...simply couldn't be anymore. I've never worried much about forever.
