Four types of relationships

Back when I began to sense that most partnerships seem to have a lifespan of about 6 years and that two people really weren't meant to spend an entire life together 'till death do they part, I learned that there are 4 types of relationships: reason, season, purpose and divine partnership.

Reason: two people come together for a reason, whether it be for growing each other in certain ways, or to learn a valuable lesson.

Season: perhaps you find each other through a brief spell, that turns and changes as soon as the seasons. This can still hold valuable lessons.

Purpose: when two people come together to serve a joint purpose -- and without that purpose, the relationship fades.

Divine Partnership: This is what you think of when you think of finding that one, you know That One. When two souls shine very brightly together and are connected on a level that (I'd hope) we all aspire to experience.
