    The relationships that last the longest are the ones based on honesty, acceptance, mutual respect, friendship, communication and love.

    Yeah, thats true, but i dont want to get married, have kids or live together, and i still think i can have a loving committed relationship without a contract/piece of paper. I am sorry if any of you feel this is disrespect, but i have to do what is best for me, and i support you, in whatever you decide to do.

    I did marry one of my best friends. I didn't marry the other one because, well, same sex marriage is not legal and I'm not gay. LOL

    I only know one couple who did that and didn't break up because, like you, one was afraid of breaking up if they got married or lived together. Anyway, they were well into their 60's when they met, been there and done that already. Both owned their own homes, neither wanted to sell, so they continue to 'date' (their words) to this day. Their in their early 80's now.

    Good luck with your plan, I'm sure you'll find someone to spend the rest of your life dating. :lol:
