True Love Is... | Where is the love? | Scoop.it

Researchers at Ted Huston of the University of Texas followed 168 newlywed couples for 14 years. After 14 years, 62 were happily married, 38 were unhappily married, and 46 were divorced. These are the main reasons why these relationships last. Surprisingly, rocky full of drama passionate love, isn't it.

 

Happy lasting relationships:

1. Began with an average courtship of 25 months

2. Unfolded as any good friendship: Slowly and steadily

3. Involved warmth, empathy, kindness and forgiveness

Why you need to give your best to relationships

A boy and a girl were playing together. The boy had a collection of marbles. The girl had some sweets with her.

 

The boy told the girl that he will give her all his marbles in exchange for her sweets. The girl agreed. The boy kept the biggest and the most beautiful marble aside and gave the rest to the girl. The girl gave him all her sweets as she had promised.

 

That night, the girl slept peacefully. But the boy couldn’t sleep as he kept wondering if the girl had hidden some sweets from him the way he had hidden his best marble.

 

Moral of the story:
If you don’t give your hundred percent in a relationship, you’ll always keep doubting if the other person has given his/her hundred percent..

This is applicable for any relationship like love, employer-employee relationship etc., Give your hundred percent to everything you do and sleep peacefully.
