    Apr 9 2013: I learned a few things based on love in relationships during my childhood. One is that, even if someone is wronged by a person they love, the love will still stand strong (wish more people learned this). Another is that physical attributions to love in a relationship should typically be shared before and after a duration of not seeing each other, such as before bed, or before leaving. This deriving from the goodnight and goodbye kiss, as well as the welcome home hug and kiss. I also learned to share (three brothers and two sisters).
