    You will have one. It won't break you up and you'll then be in a normal, serious relationship.
    I know we will have an argument at some point, but I thought the sign of a strong relationship was that it doesn't change it rather than morph in a "normal" relationship?

    A family? Neither of us want children. But we have talked about adopting one day in the very future.
    Do I see myself staying with him forever? Life doesn't come with any guarantees so I don't want to take us staying together for granted or for sure. But we were close friends for years before we got together and we didn't take getting together lightly. So far we've managed to get through a lot of difficult issues/times because both of us are willing to work very hard at our relationship, it means a lot to us. Hopefully this will continue to be the case in the future, but I'm well aware that, you know, things change, **** happens and life doesn't always work out the way you planned. As scary as that is.

    I'm 20, he's 21 (nearly our birthdays though).
    Yes, serious, we live together in term time.
    He was going to propose in the summer so I think so! But I told him I at least want to finish uni and be together a bit longer before getting engaged. But we do want to be together Sure we have our arguments, but we definitely know how to deal with them, like any mature couple.

    How old are you? Im 16 shes 16 (shes 6 months older for those who havent seen girls with younger men )
    Do you consider the relationship to be 'serious'? yes
    Do you see yourself staying with your partner forever, having a family etc? I see no reason to end it at the moment, there are still many barriers along the way (Uni and then living together), we are both too young to know exactly what we want and whether we are compatible in our ambtions.

    since feb on and off (distance created drama so weve broken up twice now and were back together)
    so yeh i would consider it serious after everything weve been through
    were both 19 so in no position to start making plans but i hope it works. we have talked about what we both want in life and we match really well (married, kids, pets, and all that)
    what are all these questions for???

    Yeah I suppose so

    Do you see yourself staying with your partner forever, having a family etc?
    It's funny, because I don't. He doesn't want children, and I really really do, so it will be a bit of a dealbreaker at some point unless he changes his mind..

    Yes it is serious.
    We have to an extent -- we've agreed that we'd be ****ing idiots to ever split up as we're so great together (never had an argument the whole time we've been together), so therefore in theory we should last forever :p: we both want to get married and have kids, but I'd say the only thing we've seriously agreed on is that we'd move in together when I finish uni.
    so then what happens when you do have an arguement??

    We've been together for a little over two years (and yet I suppose my signature gave that away anyhow). I'm 19 and he's 21. We're engaged, so I'd say we're pretty serious about one another - yes and, in a perfect world, of course I hope that we'll be together forever and have a family.

    A relationship that nothing changes at all doesn't exist, btw.

    Well... I don't know, and I guess we're kind of on the rocks at the minute because LDR is causing problems- but I would like it if we did.

    I haven't a clue haha. I'd like to think, knowing how we are now and what our personalities are like, that if we did argue it would be sorted quickly and then we'd look back and laugh at how daft we were for falling out.

    Oh no I understand that, I just mean that a single argument shouldn't change the tone of an entire relationship.

    My sister once had a relationship with a guy, they were together for a couple of years and they never argued. If you knew my sister that would come as a shock, as I've seen her argue with her bfs on so many occasions. Anyway, when they eventually had their first ever argument, they broke up. What's more it was a massive misunderstanding; the argument was about a couple from accross her street had just got married and divorced a week later, the reason being the wife had cheated with a man who had the same name as her bf. That's what she heard thinking the wife must have cheated with her bf so she confronted him. He stormed off and didn't come back. She found out later that the woman accross the street cheated with some guy from work who simply had the same name as my sister's bf.

    He was being honest, she had misunderstood, they were having a dream of a relationship, but after that it just didn't work out :/

    WOW that is brutal :eek:

    Me and the ex never argued in about 4 years, but it got to the point where we forgot why we got together in the first place after moving long distance. You can get on so so well with someone and have something take a nice big **** on the relationship

    nothings ever for sure, thats the only sure thing i know
