Say_i_love_you

Updated on August 31, 2016

To say I Love You....

are the most important words you can say to someone, they have to be meant or they are worthless...these words are what has given me years of a successful marriage. This is the secret to reaffirming ones commitment in a relationship or marriage, without it you will always wonder what that person really feels....Valentine's Day should be everyday!

Of course this is just my opinion and not a researched fact, but when I think of my own relationship and marriage, it is based on the affirmation of those words, affection and deeds.

I have found that this saying "I Love You" can become a habit if you allow it, just like "not" saying it is a habit...but it has to be meant...so what does I Love You mean? To me it means many different things, you can Love in many different ways, my love for my husband is different then the love of my children....you can Love God, your friends, pets, they also have a commitment of meaning.

There's not a day that goes by that my husband does not tell me he loves me, I bet in one day it's not less then a half a dozen times...we kiss each other, we hold hands and hug, we respect each other and want to do for each other...yes this sounds like a fairytale, but it's not always like this, we are human and we have issues at times and get upset with each other, but Love is compromise, sharing and communication (the later hardest of all for a man)

Not only on Valentine's Day do I Love You - but Every Day of the Year!

Not only on Valentine's Day do I Love You but Every Day of the Year!
Not only on Valentine's Day do I Love You but Every Day of the Year!

In the beginning

My husband and I have been through great deal of things that would have broken up many other couples. Coming from completely different backgrounds, ethnicity and religion, baptism of children in a different faith, the separation during the Vietnam War and the aftermath of his service, our separation while having to work in another states for months, moving half a dozen times and I having to be in charge of all the moves and sales of homes, kids moving away and being alone, having a life threatening illness, and many more things that could affect a couples well being. How did we manage these issues? for us it was respecting each others feelings, wanting to make it work and praying for God given guidance....I won't lie, it is hard but when you commit to a relationship like marriage and have done it in the eyes of God, then you have to at least try to not just walk away because it did not feel good or suite your expectations. It's a great idea those that get together for counseling with a professional before marriage.

My mother used to tell me to ask myself these questions about loving someone and making commitments, although funny as some may seem, they are true. These are in order of importance to me...ask yourself: does he believe in God the same as you? does he love his family/parents? does he love animals? would he take care of you for the rest of your life if something happened to you and would you take care of him in the same circumstances? Could you wash his underwear and socks? These questions show sensitivity, and the fact that I could say Yes to all!

Remember you don't need a Valentines Day to use these words...they should be a part of your daily vocabulary.

I would like to share some of the things that my dear husband has done to make this marriage successful with the words " I Love You."

He shows his love by always saying I love you before going to sleep or hanging up on a phone, always making sure that I have what I need or want, just a simple example: if there is something that I like, a food or drink he always leaves it for me to have, or he always asks if there is something that I need to have done, like grocery shopping, laundry, ironing, gardening or house cleaning...oh yes, he does all those things, however we do share these responsibilities...the only thing that I do myself is the cooking, making arrangement like trips or entertainment, financial aspects, the paying of bills and taxes, filing all papers and keeping records (he truly does not want to do this, and I must admit it is stressful for me to do, but at least I know it's being done and done correctly)

type=text

Another endearing thing my husbands does, is when his favorite song pertaining to me comes on the radio,"When a Man Loves a Woman" (by Percy Sledge) he would call me on the cell phone and say, this is for the woman I Love!

I have gotten into my car at times and he had the song set on the CD to play as I started the car...how romantic!

I do admit I sound spoiled, and maybe I am because I have so much Love in my life, but I am an easy keeper, I ask for nothing and want nothing...God has Blessed me with this man, what more do I need? The older I get I realize what the most important things are, showing your Love by serving God, family and friends.

Being retired has been challenging but a freedom I hope all will be able to experience. My husband loves to golf and serve his fellow servicemen through volunteering for the Veterans, the V.V.A. Chapter, Purple Heart Association, Patriotic Soc. VFW Veterans for Veterans and many other Events, including participating in several Funerals a week honoring a Veteran with a ceremony.

God Blessed my husband and brought him home to me. Vietnam was a bad time and experience...he received a Bronze Star and Purple Heart while in Vietnam, but he lost his best friends at the same time, this is who he honors and all that gave of themselves, especially their lives. This is something I admire about him.

I of course paint to my hearts desire and try to do good with what I sell...this is what I enjoy doing.

Both of our daughters have been reared hearing those words "I Love You" and this meaning serves their lives...My heart swells with Joy and Love thinking about them...and I Love and Thank my husband for these two precious gifts of our life.

As different as we might be, we have made it work since 1963 and it will be till we say "see you in heaven" at our death bed, all this because we say " I Love You"

Love Quotes

Love is always bestowed as a gift - freely, willingly and without expectation. We don't love to be loved; we love to love.

Leo Buscaglia


Love does not dominate; it cultivates.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


A man falls in love through his eyes, a woman through her ears.

Woodrow Wyatt


Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.

Robert Frost

Books - never too young to teach the words I Love You

I Love You Through And Through
I Love You Through And Through

We as parents always told our children I Love You...they heard us say ir to each other. It's important to teach and show love to a young child so they become accustomed to knowing the true meaning...this helping them in later life.

Our daughter and her boyfriend made arrangements for her dad and Tom (the boyfriends dad) renting a boat with a picnic on board...gliding through downtown Milwaukee on the River, then out to Lake Michigan, a day filled with Love and Joy.

In the photo we docked at a Bar-landing having a drink, from left to right my hubby Al holding my drink (he does not drink) and the grandog Annie, Scott, Tom (1933-2011) and Elisha in the back.

Our other daughter lives nine hours away, but Al got to hear those words "I Love You dad"

      Absolutely! Love is a staple in our household, and I hear it countless times a day. Even though my husband works far away every day, I get phone calls throughout the day to ask how I am, what I'm doing, and to tell me he loves me. What a precious man! We have cherished 43 years together and look forward to many more. :)

      Such a touching story, and to one which I can relate. I was married to a Vietnam Vet, and they are definitely different to live with! Mine, like yours, told me many times a day how much he loved me. I treasure those memories, now that he has passed away. May your days together be blessed by much more love!

      Thank you, dear Delia and Al, for being inspiring examples of true and enduring love. Yes, my hubby and I tell each other all the time that we love each other. The funny thing is, when we first started seeing each other, we had each been through somewhat bitter separations. After a month or so of dating, he said to me - in all seriousness, and with a touch of sadness in his eyes - "I'm not a guy who says 'I love you' to anyone..." I recall feeling a little sad for him (it was still early on in our relationship). And then one day, his eyes were shining and he said, "I love you!" and it has been this way ever since. We'll have been married 15 years in May 2013... together for more than 18! You are absolutely right about it being about mutual respect. I've never had anyone in my life like this, and I sometimes think I have a marriage most women could only dream of. Squid blessings to you and Al! :)

My hubby was extremely shy and was not of many words,(especially I Love You) just the opposite of myself...guess I brought him out of his shell, because he has a great personality and is not shy one bit!

      WOW, what a real BEAUTIFUL, captivating lens! This is ONE of my most favorite lens, because my husband and I are the same way too. We always say I LOVE YOU no matter what! It's so TRUE that marriage is not always a bed of Roses. However, we definitely can spice it up to make it like a Fairytale, by saying the word, 'I love you' as often as we can. When we argue about something, it normally doesn't last longer than 5 minutes because we end up saying the word "I love you". We can't take it when we say something hurtful to each other more than 3 sentences I think, hahaha, so the word I love you cuts our argument time by 70%. It's amazing how these 3 powerful words can do in marriage. We do not leave each other's side without saying I love you; we do not let an hour pass by without saying something nice to each other. My husband is everything to me. He's my soulmate and best friend. My husband is real quiet and an introvert person, while I am the real opposite; I'm "bubbly, loud" and have an extrovert personality. So we have a great balance of charm and temper, haha. I make him laugh with my jokes no matter how mopy or cranky he is; and when I'm unusually quiet, he does his role to lift me up by making sure that I'm ok. He always makes sure that I'm well, happy and taken care of, even though I am a very domesticated wife, who also makes sure he's the same way. I love being married, and you're absolutely right, saying the word "I love you" as often as we can to our spouse, children, etc. makes a HUGE difference in life. Thank you so much for this incredibly interesting topic. I loved it! God bless you Delia dear, and stay fabulous the way you are! Huge hug :) God bless you and your dear husband!

It makes a very big difference in the relationship just to know that the other cares. (And saying I love you is such a very romantic gesture too). I love having shared this time with you and your husband.

      This started back when was dating because we didn't like to hang up. I used call him at night and talk to him until he fell asleep then I would listen to him sleep.

      Dear d-artist,

      I like this lens for many reasons. First one is the title of the lens. It says everything about your lens. Other thing is saying that in different languages. Lets love each other and don't hate anyone. 5 STARS to this lens.

      Hey Delia! I have learned over the years to make absolutely sure you mean those words when you say them to someone. In my younger years, those words got me into more trouble than I care to go into. :0 However, I have learned and know that they are so important and should be used liberally when dealing with those who are special to you. By the way, my computer crashed on me and I lost your e-mail. Could you e-mail me because I have a small favor to ask of you in regards to couple of our fellow lensmasters who need our moral support right now. Thankx!

      My husband was the first person to say "I love you". We had been dating a week. I didn't believe him. But after twenty years together I've learned through his actions how much he does. Interesting lens
