Taken from my friend Erica’s blog:
“The concept of two people living together for 25 years without a serious dispute suggests a lack of spirit only to be admired in sheep.”
– A.P. Herbert
My thoughts exactly. It’s not WHETHER a long term relationship will have disagreements (uh, they WILL), it is how they are RESOLVED.
Have you ever known one of those couples who always seems to get along great and they always tell everyone “We NEVER fight.”? You ever notice that they often SUDDENLY split up and everyone is like “WTF”?
Of course they didn’t fight; they held in all their issues with one another with a smile on their face and then one day it all came out in a BAD way. Game over.
