Relationships Should Not be Left to Chance appeared first on Relationships Reality and was authored by Sarah Adelle and Sophia Elise
Relationships should not be left to chance. Everything we, as a couple, do creates the relationship we have currently and shapes its future. Resolved issues can be left behind, but unresolved issues come along with us going forward, and if it was a problem in the past, it will be a problem in the future. Don’t think you can leave your relationship up to chance and it will all work out. There is just as great a chance of it not working out.
We all need to realize that what we and our partners put into a relationship, is what we will get out of it.

When a couple starts dating, the subject of monogamy should be approached early on to learn each others views.

If you are looking for different things from a relationship, they might not be the right person for you. Sure, over time, they may change their mind, ..Read More
