Love is Blind

My girl, Eve, sure said it with the lyrics, "Love is blind."

I was thinking this evening about people who are in unhealthy relationships. I'm not talking about abusive relationships (though those certainly qualify), but I'm talking about the ones when it's so clear to everyone except for the couple in question that the relationship is all wrong (Speidi, anyone?).

I think one of the biggest problems with these relationships is the strain they can put on other relationships (friends and family). In the end, that just isolates the couple, making it even harder for reality to sink in, and by the time it does, sometimes friendships can no longer be salvaged.

Have you ever been in one of these relationships?

Or... to add a twist: Have you ever dated someone knowing full well it was a mistake from the start?
