Whatever name it goes by

... it is, (among other things)...

... not about being together all the time, but getting out of each other's way.

... not about having the same tastes, but being thankful that they're different.

... not about talking, but knowing that it's better to be silent than start an argument.

... not about trust, but sticking together despite countless reasons to mistrust.

... not about listening, but about saying every day, "Deaf woman, for the third time, switch on the fan!"  --"Mister, for the last time, look for your pants yourself."

... not about believing the partner is simply superb, but about wondering every evening, 'how come this morning I found him/her wonderful?'

... not about doing everything every day, but declaring 'I made breakfast today, it's now your turn to make dinner.'

... not about spending holidays together, but about being with own friends, in the pretext of giving each other 'space.'

... not about being happy with each other, but being happy in spite of each other.
