The definition of “happily ever after.”
There is nothing quite like the feeling of finding the person with whom you want to spend the rest of your life with. If you survey all the people in the world, a vast majority of them will probably regard meeting the loves of their lives as one of the highlights of their being. It is an inherent human attribute for us to be constantly craving for love and affection. We are always looking for people with whom we can build a life of love around. Some of us are lucky enough to find it early in our loves. A lot of us have to wait very long. A lot of us have to experience multiple heartaches and rejections. Plenty of us practice lots of patience, resilience, and hope before we finally find that one person who makes life worth living.
A lot of people often wonder how they would exactly know for sure when they’ve found the person to spend a lifetime with. There is an understandable insecurity that exists within a lot of relationships. Is the relationship that you’re in right now really the one that’s meant for you? Could you do better? Could you do worse? Should you be putting all of your marbles into this relationship right now? These are perfectly normal questions that pass through peoples’ minds a lot when they are in relationships.
Of course, getting into a long-term relationship with another person is a very big deal. It takes a whole lot of commitment, time, effort, and emotional investment in order for a relationship to work. That’s why a lot of people will tend to wonder if the relationships that they are in are the ones that are worth investing themselves for?
