No matter how fiery they may start, most relationships settle in and get a little duller after a while.

That’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s exhausting to be on fire all the time, especially as you get older. At some point you just want someone to share your life with in a way that’s calm and simple and reassuring.

But for better or for worse, there’s almost certainly going to come a point where you realize the honeymoon is over, like these anonymous folks did.
