Being in love is a wonderful feeling; love can bring out the best in any relationship. When you marry the person you love, you feel blessed. Oh! It’s wonderful to be in a relationship – you meet someone, you fall in love; you have disagreements, you argue; you have bad days, you have good days – but what really keeps you together and going is love. But a few years into marriage, and many couples start taking each other for granted – yes, even the ones who were once besotted with each other. However, that is not to say that the love dwindles, because it doesn’t – it just grows stronger with time. But, the frequency of saying ‘I love you’ to each other after a few years of marriage may decrease as opposed to how it was in the first couple of years of marriage or during courtship.
If you have been married for a few years, we know you love each other and may not express it out aloud always, but sometimes, it’s good to say a few words of love every now and then to your spouse. We bring you some love quotes – share these quotes with your spouse, and let them know how much they mean to you.
