Every time I hear people say “the love ran out” it makes me meditate on that phrase and the reality is that I don’t think it’s true. Love is not a feeling love is a decision. I really believe that is one of the factors for which society is the way it is today, with people increasingly living more materialistically and less effective. If we were to get carried away by feelings then every time we would be changing from partner to partner and from place to place.
A few weeks ago I had the privilege of celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary and I will tell you that marriage is not easy, it comes with great joys but with enormous challenges. Many times I wanted to drop my gloves and sometimes even thought: is it better to be on my own or go our separate ways. Plenty of times we have had great arguments about how to raise our daughters, among other things. The flame of passion has not always been up but we have managed to reach a happy medium. And today I can tell you that we are more in love and passionate than 25 years ago.
When we make a covenant of love, we must understand that it is a covenant forever. Love does not end overnight love must be cultivated as if it were a plant. We have to encourage communication and talk with our partner and let them know what we like and what we don’t like even in intimacy, don’t assume they know it. Don’t forget to love because you made a decision to and not just because you felt like it.
