Love and Flexibility

W. Somerset Maugham makes a very good point when he said:

"We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person."

Felxibitity is perhaps the most underated trait that is essential to staying in love. Could it be that far to many relationships fad away because one or both lack this essential trait?

Flexibility, so long as it doesn't take the place of having personal boundaries, is a very important quality to sustain married life...along with humor, emapthy, and curiosity.

Only married going on 6 years, (where did the time go?) I have to say "patience" is also important! --- Then again it's an important trait for life itself...
