Problems come with every relationship. Some are more complex than others. It becomes an even larger challenge when you have conflicting personalities or different beliefs. You have to agree and set rules or boundaries. Communication among all parties is number one. Sometimes checkpoints or re-evaluation periods are needed. Is everyone happy? Is everyone getting their needs meet? If some answers are no, what's going to be done to change that? Sometimes an objective point of view is needed to see things a bit clearer, which is where all of these lovely forum members come into play. That third party can be the voice of reason and sometimes point out things that were missed. There are people who are happy or experiencing success. Not all of it's sad and heartwrenching.
