When it comes to friendship, there are those who are only meant to last for a season and those that will be there forever. Most of them will come and go and only a few will stay. In that way I do think that relationships between friends are less stable than a relationship you have with family members. This may stem from the fact that with family you are born and raised with them and society is focused on being close with your family. I also think that it is much easier to get into a fight with a friend and call it quits than it is to do so with a brother. I believe this because it has happened to me multiple times. Unfortunately, over the years I have lost many friends because certain things happened and we were unable to work it out. That also plays into conflict management. When conflict arises between friends it is much easier to break the friendship off in cases of severe conflict. In family, it is much harder to do that because you are more likely to have a deeper connection with them than a friend. In a romantic relationship I believe these are even more unstable than friendships and family relationships because in this type of commitment things are largely driven by emotions rather than familiarity. When conflicts arise in romantic relationships it can go from little problems to large in the blink of an eye because emotions can get out of hand.
