I'd say missing the point. The point is to not be so wrapped up in the illusion of permanence that you fail to live in the moment. Relationships do not have a permanent, fixed nature, they are constantly reforged moment by moment. A relationship does not have an independent, real existence, it is the sum total of all the things that create and sustain it. One can love deeply, and for a lifetime, while still avoiding the trap that is referred to as attachment.

I wish I could explain it better, but I'm far from enlightened myself, and have my own battles with attachment to fight.

I think you're spot on here.
