Bombshell: A relationship cannot survive on love alone (at least not on today's definition of love - which is usually a fairy-tale, live-happily-ever-after fantasy). The lovey-dovey feeling that happens early in the relationship will fade. And once it fades, all that is left are two very different people with a long journey ahead of them.
If you can learn how to care for your relationship, it could last forever. But unfortunately it seems that many today aren't accustomed to this care-centered thought process. In fact, many think they made a mistake, or decide that they need their freedom. This often leads to a breakup. If you want to have a happy relationship, be prepared to set aside your selfish desires, because it takes more than "love" (or today's version of "love") for a happy and lasting relationship.
