I know a little bit about it Covenant, and read through the thread quickly just now. I think commitment is under-rated and essential to the success of a relationship.
The problem is, I'm an idealist.
So I think all relationships should be committed. They aren't -
so when you really want to show how committed you are, you enter a special legal contract called a marriage. It's like an official
official relationship. It's a commitment that you can get out of if someone is unfaithful, or abusive, doesn't communicate, or becomes another person than they used to be. Which are the reasons almost EVERY relationship ends. This one costs money to get into and out of. They're pretty popular. I've been to a quite a few. My parents have had three each.
