  1. People with deeper understanding and maturity only can handle long distance relationship. They should workout the intricacies before entering into it. There is no denying that digital medium have facilitated communication immensely and you are connected all the time. But meeting at regular intervals is a must. Finances, managing two household is a task which should be handled with mutual consent. Sharing, caring has to be on forefront. *p*

  2. I know of couples in long distance relationship. They have mastered the art of communication using the social media and Skype chats. They meet once a year and pack in all the excitement and romance in those few days. They are committed and at the same time growing as a person. Though they would love to live together but have no complains with the distance between them. It all boils down to having trust and building a strong bond. *p*

  3. I think people who live in a long-disctance relationship develop a unique way of relating and certain dynamics. The routines of their chats, or when they meet. What I think is that one is comtted to common gaols as a couple, hence what keeps them together is perhaps children, the home, parents…even savings that they do as a couple for future. I think we are very adaptable and we find a way to relate and connect. But one thing tnat could be serious is a person we may find to relate to everyday in our hometown. That could be an issue! *p*

  4. Long distance marriages work only if both the spouses have a strong and independent emotional constitution. A strong emotional intelligence that is not dependent on each other for their respective well being. In long distance relationships, trust is surprisingly not the main factor that makes or breaks it. It's a perception or sense of abandonment. The feeling that 'I' am left to fend all things tough while 'you' are having it all easy. So, while distance may or may not make the heart fonder, it can definitely strain the relationship if one does not have a mature emotional quotient.*p*
