“Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love”
– Carrie Bradshaw –
That kind of love. Do you know it?
A study by Siemens Festival Nights concluded that 73% of married people settled. They did not marry their true love. They settled for ‘good enough’ or made the safe choice.
• 17% said they met their soul mate too late. When they were already married to someone else.
• 46% said they would leave their current partner to be with their true love.
So why do people settle?
Relationship expert Kavita Patel explains people settle for a variety of reasons. For a fear of being alone, for wanting security and comfort with another person – anyone for that matter. Time also plays a major role in this. “Well, it’s better to be with somebody than nobody. I think that comes up for people,” Patel said.
Would you settle because the time is right? Or would you rather be alone than settle for less?
