What is this? I’m thinking Norse mythology. Is this from an anime?
"We’re all seeking that special person who is right for us. But if you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there’s no right person, just different flavors of wrong. Why is this? Because you yourself are wrong in some way, and you seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness. And it isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, your unsolvable problems—the ones that make you truly who you are—that we’re ready to find a lifelong mate. Only then do you finally know what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: the right wrong person—someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, ‘This is the problem I want to have.’"

I’ve never thought of it that way. The “wrong person” concept. I disagree with the last part though. I think, that you can only truly love one person.
The secret for long relationships is not having a perfect and harmonious love affair. It is not how often you fight, not because of the number of similarities and the stuff you both like doing together nor the number of mistakes you made. Those things count but it is the faith that keeps you going. A relationship would last if both of you are willing to not give up, if both of you are willing to stand up and still try every time one of you or both of you fall. You should not lose hope when you are struck with problems along the way. Give each other hope and hold on as long as you can.
"Until we have seen someone’s darkness, we don’t really know who they are. Until we have forgiven someone’s darkness, we don’t really know what love is."

Itachi: Not bad, Sasuke, but…
Sasuke: Hey! No fair!
