"When I see two old people still in love, I know that the tide of married life has never washed away their belief in the worth and capacity of each other. I marvel at seeing them more in love today than when they first married fifty years earlier. It is enough to restore one's faith and belief in all mankind to find 'love for another' the most enduring of earthly gifts. Such constancy has enabled love to grow stronger; to last from that passionate time in their relationship, through to that peaceful time in marriage when a look of understanding, a simple holding of the hand, a compassionate touch or a kiss and a cuddle is sufficient proof that one is still loved as much today as one was the day one married.
Content married life between a loving couple reminds me that 'love' is what brought us into life, love is what keeps us alive and the expression of love, one to another, is the most purposeful reason for being alive!
Whereas emotions of sadness can often be hidden from the face, love cannot be disguised in any form it shows itself. Its sheer presence stands out like a beacon of happiness and hope for all that is good in the building of lasting relationships; all that is possible between man and wife."
