In other words, what is that combination of "things" that "move" you and make you want to spend your life with her? And if you are married, what is it about your wife that endears you to her?

That was beautiful, Ed! Sounds like you're having a full life.
Sigh......This is one of the most beautiful, romantic things I have ever read written by a man describing "Love", his wife and marriage. There can't be a woman alive who would not be overwhelmed to hear her husband say these things!!
I agree with Paula, Edward. Your description of your wife is breathtaking. Thank you also, for providing me with a perfect example of a loving man. I am thrilled that you and your wife have a beautiful marriage.
Thank you for sharing your of the love of your life here so beautifully and honestly. It is refreshing to know of a man who is able to share the love in his heart for his wife. You are blessed in this life to find her, and she is blessed to have you
I'm 68 now and, as I look back, it has been an eventful life and I really do have a great many reasons to be thankful; my wife and children are at the top of the list.
Hi tsmog....food for thought---about the non-falling thing. On the other hand, some say that "falling" is an appropriate term because of the "things" that happen in the brain when we initially "fall" in love. But "realizing" sounds more reasonable...
Very acquainted with all those synapses firing and those neurons transferring stuff chemically said with a giggle. With 'Discovering Love' I finally had to accept a resource for understanding and acceptance choosing 'The Four Loves' by C.S. Lewis :-)
That's interesting, dashing. Clooney's answers were so "general," yet he adores Amal. As to mindset, that's another fascinating perspective. Do you not think that love comes upon us like lightening at times? True, formula has nothing to do with it.
I believe "infatuation" comes upon us like lightening sometimes. :) And yet I believe it's possible to be infatuated with someone but be a long ways from wanting to marry them. Almost all (new relationships) have elements of infatuation.:)
Yet, in Clooney's case, he got struck by Cupid almost immediately---and he was a confirmed bachelor! I would think he is not merely infatuated, but who knows. Thanks for answering, Dashing.
Wonderful answer, emmyboy. I especially liked that you said decency matters a lot. It sounds like a "well-rounded" woman would be perfect for you.
