What do you think about relationships "requiring work?" Do you think that marriage/relationship is just a walk in the park and you and your Husband/SO "just work?" Or do you believe that marriage and relationships require a lot of work and effort?
I've just always believed that no matter who you are, and how well you think you "work" together, everybody has arguments and rough times---
Just looking for opinions.
--I have been with my Hubbie for over 4 1/2 years (we're highschool sweethearts), and have definately had our fair share of spats and arguments, but we've never given up on each other. I really do believe that my relationship requires work and effort on both sides. And even though we've hit rough patches, we're still more in love and happier than ever.

Relationships require work for sure! I think there's too much breaking up at the slightest breeze these days. Socks on the floor, TP loaded the "wrong way", not taking out the garbage...that is small stuff. Nagging only makes a man determined to avoid what you want him to do. If he does do it after you've browbeat him, he will be resentful. Both scenarios are a recipe for disaster IMHO.

My DH and I have been married for 17 years, together 19 (as of today :o)) The time before children was a walk in the park (9 years). It's when my time was not 100% available to him that our issues arose. Then a special needs child added some interesting elements! lol! Neither of us believe in divorce, but we've still had to work to make things go smoothly. Every once in a while we hit a bump in the road, but we're in it for the long haul! :o)
