Love is a wonderful feeling isn't? When you have seen the one you have seen and it just feels like a dream when you finally have him or her. It's amazing and so exciting, a precious and beautiful experience full of fun.

When love, marriage or a relationship is new it's so amazing and you want it to stay that way, the experience literally makes you feel like the best and happiest person alive. And It's true love can make you feel that way when it's done right.

But what most people call love is not 100% what love is, it's just emotions or brain chemicals which are concerned with evolutions purpose of mating and reproduction. So most of it is not fully love but emotions which changes with experience, maybe that's why some people say "there is chemistry". But like anything that is new, emotions are high, do you remember when you first had your phone? Do you still feel the same way about it now? The truth is your emotions torwrds it have changed. It's that way with some relationships too, it's but just emotions which changes with time of being in the same for longtime and after emotions have changed, problems and conflicts begin to set it.

When you see someone you like, there is kick of brain chemicals which you may call love or chemistry which goes on for about three months, such emotional state makes you see only the wonderful, beautiful and good things about the person, and makes you over look the wrongs, mistakes and faulty side of the person( like they say,, "love is blind" do you remember?) the purpose is of evolution, simply giving you a drive for its purpose of mating and procreation. If that was not so, the rate of mating and reproduction would have been very low. So when the emotional attachment begins to fade away true love is tested, this is when some people feel like love has ended and at this stage problems and conflicts and infidelity set it leading to the failure of a relationship.

Here are some of the reason why relationships fails when true love is tested:

Wrong expectation is one of the reasons that may lead to breakups... Expecting that a relationship will be in a certain way that appeals to you only to find out it's in another way opposite to what you expected

Unfulfilled expectations could be in the area of:

Common interest
