A relationship does not always have to start with being in love. You can also first be friends or start a relationship as friends. A relationship can evolve.

The quality of a relationship does not depend on how much in love you are with each other. It depends on what is important in a relationship for you and your partner, like for example: feeling comfortable in your relationship, having things in common, doing things together. This differs from person to person and from couple to couple.

Some people do not marry out of love, but marry for practical reasons. 

A woman and a man having fun in the kitchen while preparing a meal together.
