my sister has just celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary last june

i on the other hand have been in a relationship with one man for 16 years and 9 months, married for 13 years and 8 months. :)

so to answer your question, yes there are still lasting relationships out there.

I would say yes as well, a relationship is based on the parties involve how they would deal and resolve certain issues and aspects of their relationship.

I think that like most things, dynamics of most relationships are changing also. Gone are the days that having these was as simple as courting and maintaining it. Issues are complicated now as well. Its really how much you love a person and how willing you are to adapt for him/her.

I think sustaining a relationship if you're not yet married would be hard especially if you have differing goals and views in life. Conflicts frequently happen, but as long as you know how to give way for each other, learn to adapt with one's behavior and mood swings, and be more sensible with each other you could develop a lasting relationship.

I think couples have to learn to slow things down. Yung they take their time. After all, hindi naman need ng couples sumabay sa panahon e kasi kadalasan nakakasira pa ng relationships un. Hinay hinay lang. Relax. Chill. :)

Respect each other and put in what you would like the other to put it. Period.

Problems occur when people start creating unfair rules or grey areas in the relationship, i.e.
-He/she has friends of the opposite sex and yet he/she has issues when the other has such friends.
-Keep each other informed of what is going on in each other's lives.
-Your relationship is private, no need to let the world know when your partner has wronged you 1. Your version is almost always going to be biased to the point that you depict yourself as a victim and the context of your issue might not be known by the person you are telling
- Give each other time. Let her go shopping without you. Let him work on his car without you by his side. Time apart is healthy.
- If your partner is uneasy about something, try to comfort/reassure him/her. Playing defensive will just cause tension
- Do not sweep things under the rug, discuss problems when you can. Don't wait until they are a lot because if you do, you might express your issues with your partner in a fit of rage and all your partner will get is that you are upset.
- Learn about each other. Learn about each other's past, it will help you understand the person your partner is today. Most people skip this and then make assumptions about their partner's behaviour which usually leads to trouble
- Go on dates when you can, but most importantly spend time together
- Don't lie and cheat. Do so if you have no problem with it being done to you.

I could go on, but that is the gist.

Separate love from sex

Set limits on relationship (ie radius of 1 kilometer from home and work)

Sleep on separate beds, specially if the girls is over 25 years old.

Sa pagkakaalam ko, you can't sustain what you don't have. Sa imahinasyon siguro pwede pa pero sa totoong buhay, yan ay tinatawag na ASAKABOI

hahaha keepin it real lang, paps.
Kailangan lang ng realidad minsan talaga

There is still a way to sustain it. But until you can decide that it is the sustainable relationship you want -- then don't.

Somehow it is easier to keep a robust and low expectation relationship. IMHO a long lasting one will be felt by both parties and when the familiarity part matured enough then it would the long lasting one

You just have to devote and spend quality time with your partner. It need not be a whole day. A fun memorable lunch or dinner will do wonders to keep you connected. :)

Why the fcuk not? If you're not a minor and you're not insane, then you decide what you want to do. You want to sustain your relationship, you can. You wana screw around and ruin your relationship, you can. It's all up to you.
