Someone (an authority on the relationships) once said that no marriage or relationship is ever 50/50. That there is always going to be one of you who will give more than they receive, either emotionally, physically or psychologically. He even went on to say that if you believe differently, you've already set yourself up for failure. I'm admittedly naive and never believed it. I thought that a successful relationship was both partners contributing equally to the union. Those were my expectations. However, having been in some serious long term realtionships, I've come to realize this person was RIGHT! I was always the giving one and my partner was the taker. Anyone else experience this? And if so, how does knowing thisfact help once succeed in your relationship? Any ideas?
