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 can be a note on your pillow or a walk in the park holding hands depending on your love style.
How do couples make love and marriage last for 50 or more years? Can relationships endure with romance intact? What is the secret? 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 and needs are not met in their marriage, 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 cannot 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.
While some could argue that the key to keeping love and romance alive is an elaborate, over the top setup found in the above photo (ie: that SUPER romantic 10 year anniversary getaway), I am inclined to believe that It can be as simple a note on your pillow or a walk in the park holding hands.
In talking to countless of the happiest couples (and marriages) I know of, these seem to be the common denominators.
So, back to your original questions: Can Romance Last Forever? How long does romance last in a marriage?
Ironically enough, that seems entirely up to you and your partner, doesn’t it? Romance can only last forever if two people respect each other, want it to last, and work at it.
