This is where what I call the "ultimate sacrifice" comes into play. There is an easy question that can be the end-all be-all to your problems: do you love that person enough to accept that not everything you dream up for yourself might become a reality? If the answer is yes, then it shouldn't be an issue.
There are, of course, some things that you've always thought about and dreamt about that you might not be willing to give up. The other person might have some of their own. And that's where the comprising comes in, where the love comes in, where deciding things together and not alone as a single entity comes in.
And so for those who made it, bravo. Your love exceeds everything, and that's something really admirable.
