I ask because anytime the subject of love and marriage comes up I try to tell my friends that I can’t imagine anyone loving someone the way my husband and I love each other. My friends always look at me like I have 2 heads when I say this because we have been married for 7 years and together for ten. The honeymoon stage just never wore off, in fact, we are continue to grow even deeper in love. Everyone thinks we are so odd that after all these years and two children we are this way. We don’t argue and I am not just saying that, we really don’t. He still takes my breath away. I can’t be the only one.
Do you feel like the love between you and your husband is the greatest love in the world? I am especially interested in hearing from those of you that have been married for a while too.

We lived together before we got married and we feel like our relationship started off bad and just keeps getting better. By bad, I mean that we faced so many obstacles from day one… and the way we navigated them gives us a huge faith in what we can do together. We just feel a bond that we know other couples don’t manage to maintain. It’s a deep appreciation for having someone in your corner no matter what. And, after all these years, I still get butterflies when he gets home and can’t keep my hands off him. I know we have the greatest love in the world!! LOL We’re definitely in the greatest love club… we’re able to be whatever it is the relationship needs from us, and when we get past a rough patch I fall in love all over again. So, yeah, I’d say the honeymoon phase just keeps going for us.

I know that I have never loved anyone the way I love him…but who can say what’s between others? I HOPE that other people have as wonderful a relationship and as strong a bond as my husband and I! But I totally agree with you that the honeymoon stage just keeps going…I feel like I find new things to love about him every day.

Our love may not be “one of a kind”, in meaning that I am sure any truely committed, honest and loving relationship feels the same way ours does (to each other) ..but I know he is one of a kind, and he has given me and shown me a love that I have never experienced before. Not a superficial, what have you done for me lately love, but such a deep and rare connection that him and I could never ever find with anyone else. He is my honest to goodness dream come true. More than I ever thought any man could ever be. Definately my one of a kind.

We’ve been together for 7 years, and I love him a LOT, but I would look at you like you have two heads too! I must say, I don’t feel like our love is some crazy unexplainable thing. Every now and then when I hear people talk like you do, I wonder if I should feel bad about that. But I’m a pretty logical and levelheaded person overall, and I just can’t even imagine feeling that way about anything… I dunno, emotions are such a personal thing, it’s probably not wise to spend too much time comparing them!

Yes, completely! 🙂 We believe we are one of the lucky couples who have truly found our soulmates and understand the real meaning of true love!
We met on a whim in the States – I was at a show at my favorite local metal club to actually network with the band playing above his on the bill (haha, we still tease them about it to this day “it’s all your fault we met!”) but once I saw FI, the spark was there and I quit talking business! (I do merch for bands)
When the tour came to Baltimore, he and some of his bandmates and other guys on the tour stayed the night in my apartment (standard tour family fare if you’re stuck in a crappy vehicle) and we spent a lot of the morning talking on my front step, just him and I! He had asked very nicely (quite sloppy drunk as well!) the night before to sleep in my bed with me, and kept trying to ask me about myself (haha – trying) but the most he “tried” was to hold my hand! Awww!
I drove to see him in Richmond, VA the next day and we spent hours talking again. He tried to get me alone to kiss me but it didn’t happen! So we made plans for a date night in NJ and that’s where the magic happened 🙂
I prepared myself for that to be that, but I had a good feeling…he stayed in touch every day and all day, and when his tour was over and he was due back to Ireland, we already had plans to visit each other lined up. Then, he had a surprise layover in Philly – so I drove 2 hours to see him for one!!! I think that really sealed the deal for us 🙂
We fell completely in love, and now here I am and our wedding is less than a month away!!! It’ll be a year to the date we met! We both have never felt love like this before, or been this happy! Our relationship is absolutely perfect- we still haven’t had a real fight, only argue about who’s the best (no you are, no you are, etc….yeah I know!) and what words the children will use one day (“My children will say zucchini” “Not if I throw courgettes at them every time they do!”)We are just a perfect match 🙂
We feel lucky and special! And we never forge t it. We wish everyone could be this happy!

With everything that has happened between my husband and I, there is no logical reason that we should still be together. But, we are more in love now than we ever have, and I can’t see that going away. We’ve been together almost 8 years, and I still get butterflies when I see him after a long day. I can’t imagine loving anyone like I love him. I think everybody’s love is one of a kind, because its special to them. No 2 couples have lived exactly the same way, so how could their love be the same as another?

I do! I know its not logical, and yet it doesn’t seem far-fetched to think our love it like no other 🙂

@BrightGreen: Same here! I was beginning to wonder if I should feel bad about this, but honestly…we’re very levelheaded people as well, and our love is a very rational thing. We respect and enjoy each other, and love each other very much. But it’s not that over-the-moon-butterflies-all-the-time love. I think that’s just not how we’re built, and that’s perfectly OK :).

You took the words right out of my mouth. I don’t think our love is any different than anyone else in a truely commited and loving relationship. But our love towards each other is different than the love that each of us as individuals has felt towards any other person.

I’ve seen so many bad relationships (other people’s) that sometimes I feel we had an out of this world thing. We’ve been together for almost 8 years and although we’ve had difficult times I’ve never doubted my love for him and fell for him all over again [almost] every day (let’s keep it honest ).
I must say how glad I am reading this thread, I’ve seen so many posts and heard too many stories lately about bad relationships and people talking trash about their couple, it’s truly refreshing to read about how much some couples love each other.

My husband & I have been together since I was 15 & he was 17. This December makes 1 year since we have been married & 5 years since we have been together in total. We have pretty much grown up together. Been through so much stuff you wouldn’t believe. We wasn’t handed what we have, we have worked for it. We bicker, yes we do I am not going to say we don’t EVER argue cause that would be a lie. But we work through it, always & that is what makes us stronger! He is the only person in the world that I can be so mad at then all of a sudden look at him & just smile. He is my best friend. & I don’t just say that. I mean literally my best friend in the entire world & has been since I was 15 years old. We have done everything together & always do. We use to even camp out in my parents backyard when we was younger with a fire & marshmallows. 😛 He goes shopping with me & I go to races with him. We play video games together, play fight together, ect! We are in love & grow deeper in that love everyday that passes. We don’t only just tell each other everyday that we love each other but we show it. We hold hands, cuddle, kiss, argue then make up, talk about our future, ect.
& I am sure each loving, committed couple out there feels exactly the same as us ladies do. 🙂
