It never matters how in love you feel with your partner. There still might come a time when your relationship just stops feeling right. The uneasiness and discomfort you feel at this point could possibly be the usual restlessness couples tend to feel sometimes or it could actually be a sign that you have not chosen the right person to share your love with.
