Everything Has to Be Perfect
Society has to come to terms with the fact that once upon a time doesn't exist in real life. Couples make a relationship, not fairy tales. If both people are not willing to put forth the effort, then the relationship will suffer. However, if the couple is willing to put forth the time and devotion, then a relationship will flourish.
Couples must stay grounded and understand that there will be good and bad times. And while the bad times may seem painful and long, in the end the journey is worth it.
