The term oxymoron refers to two opposite words said together. For instance, a few oxymorons are pretty ugly, only choice, 'small crowd and so on. In that series, to me a perfect relationship is an oxymoron. Perfect and relationship are antonyms, and that's how it has always been.

So if there isn't a perfect relationship, then why are they so many celebrations of this relationship with heavy words like love, happiness and joy? Though they are opposites, they eventually do happen and that happens not in days or at first sight. It takes effort, effort, effort and time.

Having said that, a perfect relationship isn't a myth. It exists, but only if you are patient enough to see it through. It is about having the patience to dig till the last to get the gold, and not walk away while you are at 99 percent complete.

Understanding:

A common word mentioned in relationships. But what is this understanding? It isn't remembering favourites or agreeing in an argument. It is realising that he is grumpy because he is hungry, or she is yelling at me because of things that happened at work. Handling your loved one when they are at their worst is understanding in perspective.

Acceptance :

No one is perfect, and everyone comes as a package. Being able to accept your partner for whoever they are. They could be messy while you can be an organised individual. They love karaoke, and you just can't stand it. But being able to accept what is important for the other person and letting them follow their dreams and be a part of each other's journey is acceptance in a nutshell.

Trust :

Aahh...another big exaggerated word. What is trust? It isn't about your partner coming back home after a Friday night party. It is about being worried about their safety if they are late after a party. Easily said, but the way it really works is by being trustworthy and not just having the need to trust.

Be it the happy compliments or the rude arguments, end of the day you need to love like it is your last and bring your guard down. It's all those fights, arguments and misunderstandings that makes a relationship a perfect relationship.

And yeah..sorry about my long winding comment, these are just thoughts that flowed as I read the article. A good attempt.

Note: I noticed you've used the word Oxymorons for the plural of Oxymoron; the plural form is Oxymora.
Oxymoron - interesting - contradictory words are combined to form a seemingly meaningful word (from oxus "sharp" + morose "stupid")

Now thinking of perfection, who is perfect? What's perfect to me, may not suit your idea of perfection, hence its very difficult to arrive at a consensus for this term.

Next, The Perfect Relationship.. I think the relationship is only as good as the couple and as you say, it's something that both have to keep chipping at to achieve a sort of a rhythm.

"Practice makes perfect" such a lie. In my view, practice can only make anything, better. I wonder if perfection in one thing is achievable. So what do you think? Can humans be absolutaly flawless or is perfection only an idea that even flawed humans are able to achieve?
