    Love is not a feeling!! its an act of your will. If you choose to love all your life then it is possible.

    Yes, but intense feelings with ebb and flow.  Long time married couples will go through phases together.  You just have to ride with the tide and go with the flow.  Facing struggles together can deepen a love.  Feed it and loves grows.

    A. Love is not a feeling.
    B. Love is a choice.
    C. I can love whether you love me or not.

    My wife and I met just out of High School. We dated; and even "went steady" for a few weeks, then broke up.

    We were always friends. Even after we were both married to someone else. We were there for each other.

    Fourteen years later we were married ... to each other.

    We have known each other 44 years now, and just passed our 30th wedding anniversary.

    I don't know if love can last a lifetime, but all my life so far I have loved and been IN LOVE with my wife.

    Each morning I thank God for my health, for another new day, and for my wife.

    Read, or view, "The Notebook". That story parallels our life..  They were in love "All the way to heaven".

    Blessings to you all.

    Yes. But just saying "I Love You" is not enough. You Have To Work Hard To Keep Your Love Active & Alive.

    True love will always stay in the heart but its intensity increases or decreases due to the circumstances.

    Love is the highest expression one can invest in. I too agree with many of the other hubbers, love is a choice. We do have to work at it. When hard times come (and they will) and you both stick it out loving each other with all your heart, going though the tough times together, it will make the relationship even stronger, more meaningful. You'll get to the point that you don't see yourself with no one else, once you realize you got a winner. When you love someone with all your heart and they do the same back to you, they're in your corner, unconditionally they are faithful to you, etc. What else is better than that? Money? NOPE! You both can make that as a team! Possessions? NOPE! You both can work at getting them! It's lonely doing all that by yourself and for yourself. It's not fulfilling. Love is the AIM of life.

    Now loving someone for a lifetime, that is hard to answer since no one is promised to live 90+ years with their sweet heart. (I would love that). But I can say we can AIM for love lasting a lifetime.
