Being in a relationship is all fun and rainbows before you start being actually committed to someone – committed enough to start your life’s newest chapter with them; fulfilling all the promises you made to them while you were enjoying the honeymoon period of the relationship.
A lot of relationships, however, don’t move past the one phase that requires the most efforts – marriage. Before you reach the point and age in life where you actually have to settle down and start making the plans for marriage, relationships collapse. Ever wondered why?
