One of the most wonderful attributes I admire in couples I know who have been together for many years is that they are considerate, and respectful of one another. They know each other well, and have things planned out with thought. Their behavior towards one another is always effortless. You know they are family; not because they are, but because of the way they hold together. I lived and worked in Europe for many years. I was involved in the classical arts, and speak German fluently. I am here with an open mind, hoping to meet someone who shares some of these views, and has had similar life experiences.
