If a friendship lasts longer than  7 years, psychologists say it will last a life time. 

What do you guys think? Please share your thoughts.

Hmmm another tough one dear Neme. Well I think if you're fortunate to have a wonderful human being who possesses some rare and beautiful qualities as a friend, and you both are willing to overlook each other's faults then the friendship might last a long time and possibly stay for as long as you both( in this context :forever) however to me, after 7 years a friend can decide to walk away from your friendship for reasons best known to them, never a guarantee they will last a lifetime. This is my honest opinion.. Hopefully I will get to read what people have to say based on their own experiences :)X

Friendship that has lasted for seven years is not a strong premise for continuity. The inconsistency of behavioural patterns is being exhibited every now and then due to change of priorities, movement in social class, value system, and hierarchy. Of course people change everyday and a ''close friend'' can wake up one morning for reasons best known to him or her and decide to do things differently...the length of years as people with mutual affinity isn't part of the equation. Therefore it is rather an irrational insinuation to base the continuity of friendship on on the premise of the number of years involved.

Wow. Thank you so much Dear Laura and Ucheoma. Your comments are well appreciated. I must say your reasons are very strong and I can't agree less. If an ugly relationship that struggled to get to 7 years and one party is still crying of pain, lack of mutual love and respect and so on, isn't it wise to run away from such a relationship, no matter how long it had been? So the years isn't a yardstick to measure a healthy relationship or one that will last forever so to say. THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR COMMENTS
