I have a friend who has been with his girlfriend for three years. He’s been talking about breaking up with her for the last year and a half. He went on this huge rant the other day, about how he hates this about her and hates that about her, this annoys him, that aggravates him, etc. “But she’s a great person, really.” I understand that. People can be great people, but things they do can upset you. That’s part of a relationship. That’s part of the human condition. Then he says, “I’ve promised myself that I’m either going to end it or propose by the end of the summer.”
Do you think that’s the basis of a lasting relationship? If your options are end it or get married, I’m thinking the former option is the one you should choose. I think that if marriage is up as a choice, it should be the only choice. Am I wrong?
