Love always comes into our lives unexpectedly as it’s the chemistry that occurs between two souls. Being in love is not a conscious state, but an instinct. At the same time, unfortunately, it satisfies our need for love only temporarily.

The real world is cruel: sooner or later this feeling disappears, and we inevitably return to reality.

Disappointment is a difficult stage that many couples go through. However, not everyone can overcome this phase. The largest number of break-ups and divorces falls on period #3.
