Relationships are all about give and take and not infrequently about making compromises but what dearly-held hopes, dreams or ambitions have you abandoned to keep yours afloat?

How it this about your own relationship? That's what this board is for.

Please don't fish here.

Not a journalist. And didn't mean to offend anyone. Old house with a big garden in a diffferent part of the country would be on my list.

Living in Barcelona.

So you've given up an old house with a big garden in a different part of the country for love? confused

Well, that's not unsurprising, is it, Darren? Lots of us want to live somewhere that our OHs don't want to live.

Cigarettes. Smoking is awesome.

Pretty much everything. 22 years on I'm realising I have bit by bit given up everything.
It's only very recently I've realised. Absolutely up shot Creek without a paddle right now. No idea if what to do. Had a real eye opener just thus week.
DH isn't bad just hus life somehow always came first. Now the kids are growing up I have nothing.

Shagging loads of different people?
