    The 'seven year itch’ used to signal a time of turbulence, or even doom, for couples in serious relationships. But now average relationships last just 2 years and 9 months... and social media is to blame. Here's an article explaining why:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/ar...dia-blame.html

    What about Skadi members?

    How long have you known your partner and how long have you been in a relationship with them? Did you get married immediately or did you date at first? Maybe started out as friends?

    Have you had any breakups and back-togethers along the line or has your relationship been a continuous line, without significant ups and downs?

    If you are happily married/engaged/cohabiting, please share with us your recipe for a successful, lasting relationship.

    If you are separated or divorced, but still had a long-lasting relationship over the years, what made it last for so long before you drifted apart? Did one partner have to make more compromises than the other?

    If your relationship is still young, how long do you envision it to last? Do you believe in mr/mrs right for a lifetime or take it as it goes?

    Finally, what are the biggest challenges that come with having been together for many years or even decades? Does routine get boring or do you prefer living a certain way?

    Not for a very long time. I've started a new relationship in the recent months.

    "8 - 11 months". It started with a shy loveletter from me to him last summer and developed to a serious relationship later. We´ve had good and bad times until now. After a personal catastrophe less months ago the relationship is on a good path again.

    Since we have lived together all of that time, I get at least one hint a day. I just want to make sure she is the right one. Ha Ha
