True or false?

21378_540

I'm thinking that when — not if, because if we're honest with ourselves, we know that the bloom always comes off the rose sooner or later — one of the people in a relationship first considers the question of who has more power, the honeymoon is over.

Just wanted to add -
I think tamra's absolutely right, but you're talking about two grown-ups there. And how often does THAT happen?

Yeah, when the one with the greater mate-attracting potential starts getting bored, the other is usually willing to turn backflips or put up with a world of sh*t to get them to stay. That question is always simmering right there under the surface, waiting like a spider. Simmerin' and waiting', yep.

"Ever note, Lucilius, when love begins to sicken and decay it useth an enforced ceremony."
-Julius Caesar

I am no good at love
My heart should be wise and free
I kill the unfortunate golden goose
Whoever it may be
With over-articulate tenderness
And too much intensity.

I am no good at love
I batter it out of shape
Suspicion tears at my sleepless mind
And gibbering like an ape,
I lie alone in the endless dark
Knowing there's no escape.

I am no good at love
When my easy heart I yield
Wild words come tumbling from my mouth
Which should have stayed concealed;
And my jealousy turns a bed of bliss
Into a battlefield.

I am no good at love
I betray it with little sins
For I feel the misery of the end
In the moment that it begins
And the bitterness of the last good-bye
Is the bitterness that wins.

-Noel Coward

Long ago I had heard that Liz Taylor once said "Never marry the man you love, marry the man who loves you." Me, I'm a romantic. I like to think of love as a flame. Feed it and it burns, but it can't exist in a vacuum. If both people love wisely, there's no reason not to have a lifelong honeymoon.
