Occasionally you meet them, couples who’ve been together forever who profess to be as smitten with each other now as when they first met. They may even be telling the truth.
In a study done several years ago, researchers scanned the brains of such folk as they gazed at a photo of their sweetheart. Most were in their 50s and had been married an average of 21 years. Turns out their brains showed much the same activity as brains of those individuals in the first flush of romantic love.
But for most of us the flame of love doesn’t last very long. Indeed 60% of marriages end in divorce. The problem is we humans often get so used to positive circumstances we eventually stop appreciating them. This isn’t to say there aren’t some very compelling reasons to call it quits in a relationship.
But all too often perfectly tenable relationships end because couples lack the maturity to realise that sustaining lurve demands sacrifice, commitment and hard work. They also lack the wherewithal when it comes to knowing which measures to adopt to avert, or at least slow down, the habituation that can lead to boredom and dissatisfaction with a partner.
The good news is if you’re struggling in this department, there are a number of options available to you including therapy, squillions of self-help books, the internet and this eBook. We hope you find the information in it useful.
