oh that thing called love


i have to say, i love living life with this guy and i love him more everyday. the other day i found an article circulating an article circulating around the internet  called "i didn't love my wife when i married her", have you read it? it basically talked about how when you first are in a relationship you think that you love someone, based on the way you "feel" but true love doesn't come for several more years. when that feeling may or may not be there, but your love then is a choice. i read this and thought about how true it is. love is such a complex thing. i think that society puts these notions in our head that love is a feeling, that it fades, and when it fades it s a bad thing. but it is so much more then that. my favorite line from the article simple states it perfectly, "love isn’t an emotion or even a noun. it’s a verb. better defined as giving. as putting someone else’s needs above your own"i can't say i am an expert but in the six years chad and i have been together, i have learned so much about love and what it entitles. the more you love, the more selfless you become. it is a humbling thing. i think that this article addresses several things that are not talked about everyday, but that are critical thing for relationships to be successful. and truly, i am so exited to see how our relationship and love grows in the next several years.

have you read the article? what did you think?


  1. I read the article. I agree our understanding of love in today's society is so misconstrued. It's definitely not just feelings. Like you, I love Kevin more today than I ever knew I could on our wedding day over a year ago now. Living life with him is infinitely better!

  2. I am def going to read this article! My parents have told my sister and I that since we were really little. I totally agree! If our culture now would realize that love is not easy, and that it is choice life would be so different.

  3. I love this! I've never really thought so in depth about the evolution of my feelings for my husband. In the beginning, it wass all butterflies and Cupid and giggles and nerves. It's so easy to confuse the lack of that now with some sortof dimming of the magic. But, we are so much more in love now than we've ever been. Can't wait to read this article. :) Thanks for sharing!

  4. I haven't read it yet. I need to. sweet post:)
