People may be mature and sensible (and naturally all the points for at least trying!) and they may discuss all those things but when it comes to the crunch... All's thrown out of the window. Sometimes life indeed is b**ch and then you die... Meaning that however much you try to accommodate and not think about yourself etc.etc. there comes a limit when, for example, the other half all of a sudden starts seeing things differently. And you have no control over that. Depending on the person, of course!
For sure. And everything changes based on the moment's situation. However, IMNSHO, I believe that based the multitude of choices people are faced with on a constant basis, sometimes committments are made loosely and without really having been thought through. In today's world, everything is *fast*..the saying "you snooze, you lose" is a belief not only held dear in the business world. Unfortunately, **some** people don't think before they act.
No judgements are being made, just an observation, btw!
