> But as far as my impulsive hedonism leading me to break up with my lover, over 'boredom'? Oh, dear, never! He's sexy, gorgeous, brilliant and fun to be with. He'll obviously be the same person ten years from now. Why would I want to leave him? I guess my security seeking 6 wing makes me more loyal, too. Maybe it's 7w8s who have more of a problem with disloyalty.

I'm glad that you have a strong relationship and do not have a problem with boredom, but why do you obviously assume he'll be the same person ten years from now--sexy, gorgeous, fun to be with? Yes, he will maintain similar drives and motivations, but the qualities you described are the ones that tend to be the most fleeting. Countless amounts of people in relationships have felt the same way you do now, and within five, ten, fifteen years people's behavior and the dynamics between them change drastically, for many, many different reasons that they could not foresee at the beginning, sometimes to the point of divorce. Other people have it good, and things stay the same, or even get better. Finding out what category you two fall into will call for the test of time?
