Love is overrated
I think Love (in a relationship) is what you make it and it all comes down to perspective. If when you look at your partner and think of the positive things - positive things will happen to you and your relationship. If when you look at your partner and think of the negative things - negative things will happen to you and your relationship. Perfection is the good + the bad. The balance is needed. It just comes down to keeping the balance and not letting the bad override the good.
