It's great to hear from so many that still have a deep love for their spouses after so many years. I'm 30, have been pursued by several great guys, but it never felt right, so I'm still single. However, there's so much more to life than getting married, so I'm really enjoying life and the freedom I have from being single and care-free. And honestly, marriage scares me a bit, but if one day I do feel I've met a Mr. Right... it's nice to hear that a happily ever after might be possible. :)

Love is a lifetime pursuit

Every year you grow and your loves grows with your growth and the growth of your spouse. You share joy, sadness, chilren, family, activities. You become the person you are because of love and how your partner influences and affects you. It changes constantly but there is alway the best friend there for you no matter what. Unconditional, for as long as you work at it and hold on to it.

I really have to agree with Lori because I've experienced the same revelation. I'm married for just 17yrs and it still feels like yesterday and yes there is still honey in the moon for us(lol). I remember after a couple of years of marital"bliss" coupled with its ups and downs, that I actually said to myself, "I thought I loved this guy back then but this that I feel right now, is far more than what I called love. I really love this guy!" Friends, it takes the years and all that comeS packaged with it to know that you know that you know that you possess the real thing... LOVE!

I totally agree with you, Lori.
Love comes with the years. We´ve benn married for thirty one years, thanks G´d and as time goes by you realize how strong your love gets.
Thanks for all we learn listening to you,Lori.

Thanks Lori...

First off, a little background on myself. I am 27 years old, and married to a wonderful man. We have only been married for a little over 2 years...and yet I can see sooo much truth in what Lori has talked about. My idea of what love is changes as I get older. I know that may sound odd at first, but it really is true. I say it changes because the idea of what love is to me continues to grow and expand in capacity with every day that I am married to my husband. Love is a wonderful treasure that is continuing to reveal itself to me more and more every day!!!
