According to PEP.ph, more and more Philippine showbiz couples are breaking up these days and more are predicted to come in 2024. We can only speculate on the many reasons that probably played a role in these highly-publicized breakups. But should we care that relationships are getting shorter? Well, it depends on why we date in the first place. What's the whole point of relationships anyway? If you think life is all about making yourself happy, then there's no "right" or "wrong" way to live. However, if life's meaning comes from appreciating the good things around us and making the world a little better, then activities like dating, relationships, school, hobbies, friendships, having kids someday, or even just being yourself take on more purpose.
Having a purpose doesn't mean everything will turn out great, of course. But it can give direction to make the most out of whatever situation you're in. Like anything involving people, relationships aren't perfect. But the basic reason humans were created in the first place remains. Jesus' life and message aim to redeem all of creation - including our relationship with each other.
