I was just remarking on how it is becoming more prevalent.

No insult intended. I love my children more than life itself, and I would do anything to protect them.

I admire your grit. Nah, just get to an age where it's not important anymore. I have fun but I will die alone. It's not that big of a deal really.

Then what? Hunting is a sport. But after a while you get bored of having a lot of company but no one knows you. You only let them in so far. Eventually you have to risk something and it has to cost you something for it to be real. The real hunt is for happiness. Good hunting!

With ya. The only reason I would marry was for the possibility of children, but I really don't have to marry for that--though it would be preferable.

I've never really bought into the idea of finding a lifelong companion.

re: Do you still believe in true love?


I'm a total romantic at heart so I do believe in true love. However...I also realize that love is a decision and an action more so than a feeling. The mushy, lovey dovey feelings you have in the beginning fade away with time and develop into a deeper and more mature love. One that is more of a choice on the part of that person to love that other person even when you don't necessarily like them at the moment.

And when people say that they couldn't help it, they "fell out" of love...that was just their choice to stop loving that person plain and simple.

Five Love Languages is a great book about how you "choose" to love, and make love count for each of you. Highly encourage anyone to read it, especially the OP.

Love this book! Def a must read for anyone in a relationship. If you can understand how your SO loves and receives love it will make things soo much easier.

My wife has that book and we have talked a lot about how we each show love differently. I think that book is helpful in understand each others love language.

For sure.

And that's not to say you shouldn't passionately love them. I love the hell out of my SO. But the type where you love the person yet y'all constantly fight.. Dangerous. Same for the type that many guys fall into.. Loving a girl more than she loves you. That shite pushes girls away

My parents fight every day. It's funny. They still can't stand to be away from each other for more than a few days.

Couples that fight are fine.

Couples that don't fight are fine.

Where problems occur is when one partner is passive and the other is aggressive.

I'm not really grasping the definition here.

Do I believe people truly love each other? Of course I do. Hell, I still love people that I am not longer in relationships with.. I think there is a distinct difference between realizing you and someone are not right for one another vs. loving them.

Completely agree with this. Luckily, when the emotional stuff (how you feel about someone) and the non-emotional stuff (how compatible you are as people) aligns, you have found something lasting. I'm sure we've all known that couple that fights every time y'all go out.. that is constantly back and forth about their relationship .. etc. And yet they're crazy obsessed with each other. Do they truly love each other? Sure. But succeeding in a relationship long-term requires more than loving someone IMO.

Yeah his OP is kinda vague. Maybe he was meaning that "in love" feeling?

My husband's grandparent's have been married for 50+ years. When we all get together (they have 9 kids, plus their kids, plus some of those kids have kids= an event), and everyone is sitting down to eat Pop will wait to sit with Grandma, and the other way around. They still hold hands, enjoy each other's company, and are very loving to each other. They're and inspiration.


I've been married to my husband for 9 years. We were just on a plane the other day and this couple ahead of us kept kissing. I joked with him that it's all hot and good two seconds in, but we still love each other very much (actually, more) than the day we were married.

My grandparents had been married for almost 60 years when my grandfather passed away. He died just hours after being placed in a nursing home. When my cousin entered the room right after he passed, my grandmother had her hand on my grandfather's bed and was smiling and very calmly told my cousin "the love of my life just went to be with our Lord"



To me, that is an amazing and inspirational type of love.

re: Do you still believe in true love?


Intentionally open to input as to what you believe true love is. Love is strange and different to different folks. Also love is a broad concept. I love my dog, icream, Summer-time if you are the Fresh Prince, I love my team, Country, Church, God for those who believe, Children and Fishing and Hunting.

I know love is out there because I been "in love" but now I have gone past the emotional love toward what evidently some in here believe is a deeper love, maybe true love. Yer true love is not always fun nor does it always seem that I experience the emotion but I'm still in love none the less.
