Comment : No body is 100% honest in any relationship. We all know it about ourselves but don't want to accept it! Then why expect the partner to tell you everything- the whole truth?

It is more important to believe in your partner than to know everything about them.

We don't even know the truth about ourselves--it's too complex, we change everyday. Would I love my hubby more, would our marriage be stronger, if we knew every detail of each other? Do I really want to put the relationship under a microscope? Will my commitment be stronger because of a 3 a.m. dissection? '

Comment : Depends on the situation to some extent.. Though, to keep a marriage only to keep an appearance is not emotionally advisable. Not even for children- if you are unhappy, it is going to reflect on the family life anyway. And the "society" is actually made up of us, we are not made up of the society!

It is not uncommon for the marriage to become a drag because of routine, boredom and monotony and one partner may become totally uninterested. The marriage has to continue for various reasons ranging from kids to society. In such a situation if the other partner develops a relationship outside, does the spouse has the right to object ?

Comment : Hold on please! If you love him and want to marry him and he reciprocates- he is going to be your family! Just a matter of a few months to convince the existing family...

When you've been dating for about a month and the guy is super sure to marry you but you know otherwise. He is the perfect guy with a background your family will never approve of what do you do? Should you hold on because you really love him too or should you let go for both your sanity?
