Will this relationship last? Relationship and Marital Problems: The answer is simple, it all depends upon how determined each individual is to make the relationship work. If two people want to make the relationship last forever, it will. Many couples agree to disagree on many topics. How healthy the relationship is, is a different question. Marriage therapy / couples counseling can help each person within the relationship evaluate for himself / herself if the sacrifices that are needed to make this relationship work, worth it.

Instead of worrying about whether or not this relationship will last. Try focusing on yourself. Use the marriage therapy / couples counseling as a way to learn more about your own issues. What are your strengths? What are your weaknesses? What can you learn from this relationship regardless of whether or not this relationship lasts. What do you need to do differently to make things work? Focus on changing yourself and giving your partner the room to make his or her own choices. Ironically, sometimes by giving less to the other person, you are actually giving more. Taking care of yourself is attractive to the other person because it means they do not have to worry about you. Self care is sexy. It is only when you let someone go and get to know them from a distance that they are free to come back to you.

Asking the question "will this relationship last" is a good question, but not particularly useful because in either situation you need to focus on yourself and continue to grow yourself. Having a verbal commitment from a lover is certainly helpful in determining if it is a good time for you to make certain types of decisions (should I buy a home, am I moving across country in 3 weeks etc) but it's not perfect. Lovers change their minds, and unexpected events occur that changes the entire equation. You can not plan the future. At best, all you can do is to care for yourself and to keep yourself balanced so that regardless of what happens you are in a secure situation.

CURIOUS HOW A COMPUTER MIGHT GENERATE AN ANSWER TO THE QUESTION "WILL THIS RELATIONSHIP LAST" WE HAVE AN ANSWER. DECIDE FOR YOURSELF WHO YOU PREFER. A REAL PERSON OR THE COMPUTER . . . .

Whether a relationship will last or not is impossible for me to predict, as it depends on a variety of factors specific to the individuals involved and the dynamics of their relationship.

It's important to remember that all relationships have their ups and downs and it's normal for couples to experience challenges and conflicts. The key to a lasting relationship is the ability to effectively communicate, problem-solve, and navigate these challenges together.

If you're unsure about the future of your relationship, it may be helpful to talk to a therapist or counselor. They can provide guidance and support as you work through any issues you may be facing and help you develop the skills needed to strengthen your relationship.

Additionally, it is important to be honest with yourself and your partner about your feelings and concerns. It's important to have open and honest communication, to be willing to compromise, to be committed to the relationship, and to work together to make it successful.

Ultimately, it's important to remember that no one can predict the future, but with effort, honesty, communication and understanding, you and your partner can build a strong and lasting relationship.


What are some questions I should ask myself to determine if the relationship will last?

If you're unsure about the future of your relationship, it may be helpful to ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Do you and your partner have similar values and goals? Having similar values and goals can be important for a relationship's long-term success.
  2. Can you effectively communicate and resolve conflicts? Being able to communicate openly and honestly, and to work through conflicts together, is essential for a lasting relationship.
  3. Do you trust and respect each other? Trust and respect are fundamental to any healthy relationship.
  4. Are you and your partner committed to making the relationship work? A lasting relationship requires both partners to be willing to put in the effort and make sacrifices when necessary.
  5. Are you happy and fulfilled in the relationship? It's important to consider if the relationship brings you happiness and fulfillment.
  6. Are you and your partner willing to work on the relationship? Every relationship requires effort and work, if you and your partner are willing to put in the effort to make the relationship work, it may have a better chance of lasting.
  7. Are you and your partner willing to seek professional help? If you are facing difficulties in the relationship, seeking professional help can be beneficial.

It's important to keep in mind that every relationship is unique, and what works for one couple may not work for another. These questions are meant to be a starting point for self-reflection and are not a guarantee of the future of a relationship.
