3. Attractive people will not vanish

You need to put in the effort to make the relationship work. Even if a machine does not work if not oiled regularly then you should not expect humans and relations to work without putting in any effort.
7. You cannot be responsible for someone’s happiness
Yes, you can be deeply in love with your partner but it is not your responsibility to handle or be responsible for your partner’s happiness. You can be there to offer your support even if you don’t like their choices. You can be a partner and not a parent, offer your support.
