I definitely believe that long term relationships are sustainable, but I also think it takes hard work and commitment. I remember a long time ago, maybe 35 to 40 years ago, my uncle was living with us in Philadelphia. He had gone to India and gotten married and then came back. He had to wait for more than a year for his wife to get a visa and be able to join him in America. They would write letters to each other all the time. He would call her once a week, on a Saturday evening because the phone had a discounted price for international calls on the weekend. …..please click the icon below to purchase the answer at $5
