What is Love to You?

We only regard those unions as real examples of love and real marriages in which a fixed and unalterable decision has been taken. If men or women contemplate an escape, they do not collect all their powers for the task. In none of the serious and important tasks of life do we arrange such a “getaway.” We cannot love and be limited. Alfred Alder


Is that a good argument for commitment and marriage or what? When I was younger I used to think love was all about chemistry. Now I say marry your best friend and then you’ll be happy for a long, long time!


Tell me who admires and loves you, And I will tell you who you are. Charles Augustin Sainte-Beuve

Happy Valentines Day my lovelies!

  3. Happy Valentine's Day to you too.

    The only time that love has really worked for me was when we were friends first. If there was only heat, that heat always went out eventually and I was left in the cold;)

  4. Oohh I'm saving those quotes! We've been together so long, but I still love the little things. Like I got my hair done the other day and we were walking to the car from dinner and it started raining and without saying anything he took off his hat and put it on me:)

  5. A Gift Wrapped Life

    I went for the chemistry and my best friend. After a 39 yr. love affair I am beginning to think I must be right. Love is a funny thing.

  6. I married my best friend. He drives me crazy! Sometimes good sometimes bad but I wouldn't trade it for anything. Our anniversary is in April and we will be celebrating 10 years!

    Happy Valentines day! I married my hubby after 7 years of back and forth. We both agree that we are glad we took the time then to work out our insecurities!

    Thanks for stopping by the other day!

    Happy Belated Valentine's Day, Maria! I love the advice! I am marrying my best friend and partner in crime in October. If it wasn't for his support I wouldn't be taking on a new chapter in life. I'm very grateful and lucky!
