15 Principles for True Love

1. True Love suffers along with you through thick and thin

2. Love is Kind

3. Love is not jealous

4. Love is not boastful or prideful

5. Love is not arrogant

6. Love doesn't act foolishly

7. Love is not selfish, seeking its own ambitions or desires

8. Love is not easily angered or frustrated

9. Love does not think of hurting the other unjustly

10. Love does not enjoy doing wicked deeds or wrong things

11. Love rejoices in good

12. Love bears with you through all things, it doesn't give up

13. True Love believes in you no matter what

14. Love hopes for all good things in your life

15. Love endures with you until the end no matter what you are facing

"Charity suffers long, and is kind, charity envies not; charity vaunts not itself, is not puffed up. Does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil; rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Charity never fails." First Corinthians 13:4-8


Now take this Scripture above, and every word that says: "Charity", which means: "Love", put the name of the guy or girl you are dating or planning to marry. Does he or she have these qualities?

Marriage takes an iron willed determination

A warrior girds his muscular riveted body that has been fine tuned for precision warfare in an ultimate purpose. He chooses his weapons in a meticulous fashion, strapping them on carefully with one goal in mind. He takes a deep breath and steadies his mind for the coming task at hand. A battle. Perhaps a war. A raging fire burning within him that cannot be quenched.

Like it or not, relationships are built in much the same way. Either you are willing to stand and fight for it, or you will slither idly away looking for an "easy" fix.

If you are in a relationship, how do you know if it is true love or not? Easy.

"Charity suffers long, and is kind, charity envies not; charity vaunts not itself, is not puffed up. Does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, is not easily provoked, thinks no evil; rejoices not in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Charity never fails." First Corinthians 13:4-8.

True love proves itself by the action it prompts. Gestures. Commitment. Truth. Compassion. Selflessness.

Today people are confused because they have been brain washed to conform to the ideologies of what television has helped this society to become. Women and men are disillusioned to believe they have to settle for less than God's best in their lives and relationships. That is a lie to drown people into believing there is nothing better out there.

True love understands you and respects you for who you are. True love will not shatter your faith or tear down your beliefs. True love will stand beside you and fight with you. True love requires standing strong and having enough courage to prove love for you no matter what hardships come swinging at all sides.

LOVE is a true commitment to the other person. It takes time to get to know someone. Love is truth and action behind the words: "I Love You." It takes respect and perseverance to keep the relationship thriving.

True Love is about respecting yourself and significant other and working together to have a committed relationship for a lifetime. True love is faithful and trustworthy until the day you die.

One the greatest battles you will ever face in your lifetime is desperately searching for a mate. A mate that will take you to his own (or her) and love you with all that is in them! A mate who is patient and understanding of you for WHO you are. A person who desires the same goals.

Even if the goals are different, you want a mate that will work together with you to reach an ultimate goal in your relationship with one another.

Love proves itself with you over and over. Love is there for you when you need it. Love respects you as a person and is committed to you with all that you are. Love never fails or disappoints.

In everything we will do in life, we will fight for it.

There are many things that are a fruitless battle if God's hand is not in it. One of them is fighting to have a relationship and fill a sexual void in our lives.

God's timing is always perfect.

He already has everything mapped out perfectly before we put our messy fingerprints on it. There is no such thing as a perfect relationship or marriage. It does not exist because no one is perfect.

If you think life will be oh so great after you meet and marry your TRUE LOVE, you had better reevaluate why Christ died on that cross in the first place, and start studying the Scripture above that lays out the 15 Principles of true love.

True Love is not a bed of roses. It is hard work, dedication and takes skillful, meticulous perseverance to make it thrive.

      Thank you newjerusalem for your honest comment. That is true marriage can have hardships, but a married couple does need to understand the true covenant to survive by putting God first in their relationship. I wrote this article years ago and I am working on new pieces, but thank you for your comment.

      You've made a sincere attempt to rediscover the true value of marriage and the love that keeps the marriage going. However, the hardship in marriage is different. The covenant is supposed to be life-long; the right understanding about this covenant can surely prevent many shipwrecks of marriage.

      Great hub. You are absolutely right here; being in love is a very wonderful thing, but it also has it's hardships.

      The willingness, patience, humility and strength to fight through those hardships are the true determining factors in relationships.

      Anyways, good job I really enjoyed it.
