If you can stand each other........ you can make a good couple.
Even if you want to kill each other 'til' you both rot in Hell, if you stick together... you're a good couple.
But what DOESN'T make a good couple is: duty, promise, loyalty, dependancy.
Sounds weird? Let me break it down for you:
Duty: What coupling is made with duty? So what now? Being together is a job where you try to earn benefits? ...totally not worth it. No benefits are good enough in that kind of relationship if there's a chance you can actually be in a relationship where your benefit is happiness at the end of your life.
Promise: So you're together because you promised to stay together? Let me give you a tip: Break it. Trust me, you were young, they were young, you both were young... if not young, then naiive. It's an empty promise. It's no longer for love, it's for a promise. Nothing will bloom from it. Even a child isn't worth it. You were born as a child too, live your life. After raising the child to independancy, divorce... it's not worth staying together. You're not living at all. A waste of your life, do you want your child to waste their's?
Loyalty: Loyalty... such sweet words. Such a strong word too. You shouldn't want to stay with them because you're loyal to them. You should want to stay with them because you WANT to. And henceforth, loyalty should come sprouting out from THAT. That's all.
Dependancy: Little child gonna' cry in the world all by him/herself? Awww... me sowwies. It doesn't matter if you could pay your bills or fend your own, but if you can't live without them, you're a waste of life. What happens if the other isn't around? Who's to protect you? Who's to comfort you? And etc? If you can't live without them, and they're not there, and you're not with them, then there is no you! There is no couplehood! There's nothing! Just a shallow form of childishness and immaturity! Break up! If you can live without them, it doesn't mean you're selfish or you didn't really love them! What it really means is: You are an individual, the very thing that made them love you in the first place, and if they didn't, make them now! You shouldn't not be able to live without them. What you SHOULD do, is NOT WANT TO LIVE without them. The necessity to live and the yearning to live are two different things.
Don't like the facts? Gravity's a fact. Live with it.
