So you’re in love…I mean really in love.  This is it.  You’ve grabbed the brass ring.  You can’t get enough of each other.  You get along on every level, in and out of the bedroom.  When you’re apart, you miss each other.  When you’re together, you feel like you could spend 24/7 with each other and not get tired or bored…or could you?  Is it possible to get too much of a good thing?  In reality, we all know that it’s seldom possible to actually spend all day, every day together – but what about just most of the time?  If you’re in the “honeymoon stage” of the relationship weekends together probably don’t present much of a challenge.  So maybe it’s a good idea to extend that time a bit and see what happens.  How about a week or more?  Is it still just as wonderful?  This is a good thing to do in the early stage of a relationship that you think might go the long haul.  Because once you’ve been in a relationship a while and some of the lust and luster wear off, it’s good to know that you’re with someone you can enjoy being around for extended periods without too much hassle.  Even better if you actually want to be around them.  I do believe that being in a lasting relationship does require a lot of time together…absence does not make the heart grow fonder in my opinion. contrary to the old saying.  Just as being together 24/7 all the time might not be possible or even prudent, spending too much time apart tends to create frustration and apathy – a sure prescription for disaster, and the thing that many celebrity marriages fall prey to.  Also, it’s always a drag to find out that your prince is really a frog or your princess is actually an ogress.  If that’s the case, better to discover it sooner than later.  And the only way to know for sure is by giving yourselves the chance to spend the time to really get to know each other in every way – the good, the bad and even the ugly parts!
