Brief Friday afternoon question. After hearing yesterday about the break up of a 15+ year long relationship, I had a large outburst of cynicism, and a debate at work concluded that the only lifelong relationships most of us have known are those of older people - grandparents mainly. But it was pointed out that that 'was a different generation.'
So who's got the better way - the older generation with their 'stick it out' mentality, which on the whole seems to even out over the years; or us with our 'hey, it's not working for me, I'm out' tendency? Is the second way more enlightened, or just selfish?
