  • Yes, no relationship is perfect. If you really love someone YOU can't make it work, he has to want it too. One can not survive on love alone. Sad, but true.

  • Yes I do. One person cannot make a relationship work, it takes two.

  • All relationships have problems? Yes

    no relationship is perfect and to end things when everything else is wonderful except 1 little issue is just giving up? Depends on what the issue is and how it is affecting the people involved.

    that if you really love someone you figure a way to make it work? No, the saying "All you need is love" is not true

    That ending a relationship for fear of heartbreak is just stupid and being a coward and you can never know what your future holds until it's here? Depends on the situation.

  • Human nature being what it is, there is always going to be heartbreak, pain, and sadness. A good relationship will be the cause of some of this, but hopefully most of the time, will help you get through it. Avoiding relationships means you will face all lifes sorrows--and joys--alone.

  • Yes, I believe all relationships have thier ups and downs and we all need to keep an open mind and realize no one is perfect. However, you should never compromise your safety, well-being or self-esteem for another person. Be true to yourself, look deep into your heart and mind and ask yourself, is this the person I want to and can share/spend the rest of my life with? Be honest and know that your answer is there, no matter how long it takes. Sometimes you have to wait for the answer to come to you. Take care of yourself.

  • No relationship is perfect - agreed. To end a relationship for one little thing...depends on what it is. Sometimes it doesn't matter how much you want the relationship to be fixed-if both people aren't in agreement it may never be fixed.

  • ummm- yes- that is a risk you take when you get married because no matter how hard you try, at some point in the relationship you are going to let your partner down and at some point in the relationship he will let you down. That is the hard part. You have to be willing to accept eachother's downfalls and be forgiving because NOONE is perfect.
    It also depends on what kinds of ups and downs you are talking about. If you are talking about cheating then I would have to say NO. I think there is NO excuse for that. There are all different levels of mistakes we make and issues- pornography, cheating, lying, emotional abuse, alcohol abuse, lack of sex drive, money issues.
