Love in a relationship
A relationship does not always have to start with being in love. It is also possible to be friends first or start a relationship as friends. A relationship can develop.
The quality of a relationship does not depend on how much in love you are with each other. It depends on what you and your partner find important in a relationship, such as feeling comfortable in the relationship, having things in common and doing things together. This differs from person to person and from couple to couple.
Some people do not marry out of love, but marry for practical reasons.
