Every individual strives for equilibrium in life
The road to this equilibrium must at times overcome many obstacles which in turn may appear un-surmountable. In a relationship, one is constantly (consciously or sub-consciously) trying to reassert ones position. Whenever two strong personalities join, the struggle for positioning becomes inevitable. At times I find myself attached by a very thin but incredibly resistant thread to my wife and that thin thread for me represents true love. Once true love is gone there will be nothing to prevent the rope from parting."
