How Do We Manage Long-Term Relationships?

I am writing this article in an attempt to start a dialogue with some of those who either write for The Latest or read some of the articles printed there. The question I am asking will hopefully elicit some interesting responses.

The question I need to ask here will hopefully elicit some responses from those who read it. How do you maintain a good relationship with someone who has been your mate for over thirty years? If you happen to be an older person, that would undoubtedly be the individual I am attempting to reach out to.

Nonetheless, there are surely younger people who have faced marital issues, and who have found the method that works best for them. Age may not be the factor here. What can be significant is how they have discovered the answer to my query, and what it might be. I have no desire to go into my personal experiences. However, I am looking for replies, and this is my primary interest.

Surely, any two people have their idiosyncrasies, and none of us are perfect. I have no problem saying that I too can be difficult to live with very often. We all have our bad moods and failings, so it remains clear that two people in a relationship contribute toward either making things more problematic, or have the ability to stop and think how they can potentially open the lines of communication in order that their days are happier and healthier.

I realize that what works for you may not be the solution I am in search of. What is important to me is collecting whatever information I can garner in order that the life I am living with my husband is less fraught with arguments and tensions.

Perhaps I am asking too much of the readers. As you don't know me personally, you have no way of understanding how my behavior contributes toward creating our problems. All you can do is to possibly recognize what my question entails, and in doing so, pass along your response to me and to others who may be interested. The answer can potentially be in an article that you also write for The Latest, and which can be read by people who find themselves in a similar predicament.

Frankly, I am not sure that anyone has written an article like this before. However, the blog does appear to attempt to provide a platform for dialogue, and should you choose to respond to my query, there may be others who also can benefit and see an improvement in their lives.

Whatever may come of this moment as I sit here at my computer placing my questions in words that will hopefully be read by others, it is the potential dialogue that may come of it that is most significant for me. What I am hoping is that such an approach may add a new dimension to The Latest where participants may communicate their ideas with one another.

I have discovered that learning is best produced using such an approach, and I sincerely hope that it may add something productive that can make life better for all of us.
