Sometimes I wonder if my idea of love is realistic. Have I just been suckered by too many romantic comedies ?
I don't think so...sure relationships take work, but can't the same be said for anything worth having?
I imagine a sustainable relationship/marriage as a garden. The garden that is tilled, fertilized, and watered regularly thrives and flowers and even a harsh winter cannot stop it's buds from flowering come spring; on the other hand the garden that is left to it's own devices with no nurturing hand eventually becomes overgrown and overrun with weeds .
Care or neglect : either way you reap what you sow .
