Love and Marriage: Can Romance Last Forever?

Love and Marriage: Romance can not live if it is assigned to such days as Valentines and anniversaries. Romance thrives in a day-to-day touch of a hand, smile, smirk, pinch, or pat as your lover walks by. It is a note on your pillow or a walk in the park holding hands.

Twenty-five couples who can brag about more than 1000 years of married life between them celebrated these marriages in Britain’s most romantic town in April. Gretna Green has been a haven for love and elopements for hundreds of years.

How do couples make love and marriage last for 50 or more years?

Can it endure with romance intact?

I think it can if people expect marriage to last and work for romance to endure.

Romance is the oil that keeps friction from wearing out the marriage.

Friction happens; So many people marry with the expectation that they will never have any problems with their spouse.

When problems and frictions occur, as they inevitably do, many couples question their love, rather than facing the problem and working through it.

Romance makes it easier to work through problems and endure through friction.

What is romance?

Where do you find romance?

Does romance take prince charming sweeping the lovely princess off her feet or awakening her with a kiss?

In my opinion, romance can not live if it is assigned to such days as Valentines and anniversaries. Romance thrives in a day-to-day touch of a hand, smile, smirk, pinch, or pat as your lover walks by. It is a note on your pillow or a walk in the park holding hands.

Romance can only last forever if two people want it to last and work at it.
