Think of your longest relationship: describe how your love has changed over time, did you go from the giddiness of infatuation, to mad passion, to deep respect, esteem, and friendship? Tell us about your love story.
My longest relationship lead to marriage to my wife of forty three years. We went through all of those stage and more. In some case several of those stage more than once. I think that we have made it this far because we have always been pretty flexible and understanding and always in it for the long haul. Love is really a marathon and not just a sprint. I think that we are understanding enough to share each other’s interest enough to see that the other is happy and are will to do that to bring happiness to the other sometimes even if it is at out own immediate expense.
