Unfortunately, when this stage ends, usually after 3 to 6 months, many couples are left feeling the magic is gone. A relationship that once seemed so intense now seems mundane. But established monogamy may still provide a feeling of comfort and security, and partners may believe it is normal to exchange that spark for stability. A type of joint complacency.
With engagements come the celebrations with friends, happy FaceTime dates with relatives out of the area, wedding venue selections, guest lists and most of all, expectations. The last part is what couples often look passed.
