    Relations and relationship

    What is the difference in use between "relations (between people)" and "relationship" if any? Could you give an example? Can one use "relationship" in plural (relationships)?

    konecno!

    relations:
    social, political, or personal connections or dealings between or among individuals, groups, nations, etc: to enjoy good relations
    relationship:
    connection, association, or involvement
    Relationship is "more" than relations, IMO.
