“Perhaps both partners have a secret hankering for romance, although they might not want to admit it—they generally present a tough, no-nonsense persona, repressing all signs of weakness in each other’s company. Neither partner may see the need for marriage, and indeed their relationship is usually quite complete without it.”
i don’t know about this partner part but i guess this describes me in all relationships ever. only i am only tough enough to repress weakness temporarily. just kidding, i have no weaknesses.
