Be prepared to run a marathon in your relationship, not a sprint.
It’s easy to get swept up in the honeymoon phase. All around us are those who have decided to just put the honeymoon phase on repeat, only with different people, because they are unwilling or unable to make the commitment to a long term relationship. There is something to be said for the excitement and wonder associated with falling in love, but the beauty and partnership found only in staying in love is far less common.
If you are anything like us, you were built for relationship, and your life is fuller when you have someone to share it with. There are many sacrifices necessary to play the long game, but we’re convinced that it’s worth it, and there’s much more gained than lost if you choose commitment.
