What is love? When you ask someone that question everyone will give you a little bit of their own slant or a little bit of their own take of the opinion of what love is. In our culture, love looks different depending on the situation. For instance, the love between a parent and a child.
A different type of love is between a man and a woman, a husband and a wife, is all about choice and we choose to be loved and love that person. For me, loving my wife is that I want to be with her and spend time with her and that we do a dance and life together. As we go through life.
Oftentimes times we say that we love our spouse, but do you like them? And that’s a different subject that I think that we could go into great detail. But, I think having the Five Love Languages not only helps us to love our spouse, but it also helps us to like our spouse.
Have you ever been around older people who are still in love with each other? You can see the twinkle in their eye, they sit close to together at a ball game or during the church, they hold hands and even every now and then you’ll catch a kiss. If you watch really closely, it just shows that love and how some of those people have experienced love and marriage for as long as 50 or more years. I love watching older people that are still in love and how it shows us that love can be kindled throughout a lifetime in marriage.
