I have been married for 26 years, and have to admit that at different times, the whole "love" thing ...that special feeling that you get when you first fall in love kind of wains. However, I believe too that love has many dimensions. There are all kinds of love in a relationship. It's the working at those kinds of love that make a marriage or a union. Any relationship takes effort from both parties, and to me, if both people are working to the same end, the love only gets stronger...just feels different.
I still get the flutters though, when my husband smiles at me, or compliments me on how I look. Or just holding me...it still makes my heart sing.
