I have really been thinking about relationships today, and I keep going back to what my grandmother has always told me about her 55 year marriage to my late grandfather. I thought it would be cool to start a list of lessons you have learned about love, either from your own experience or from someone else.
Here, I’ll start!
Love is when someone sits on the porch swing with you for hours just to hold your hand.
Love is when you never get sick of trying, even when you are sick of the person.
Love is when your fiance will listen to even the most minute details of your planning over and over again just because you need an ear to listen.
Love is when your husband makes you a bagel every morning for breakfast and never asks for anything more than a kiss.
Love is when the size of the ring doesn’t matter; it’s all about the size of the heart behind it.
Now it’s your turn!

Love is that he marries you 10 years and 3 kids later … and hasn’t left you at any point in those 10 years!

Love is this thread….this is so sweet!
Love is never having owned a pet, but taking on yours like it’s natural.
Love is rubbing cramping tummies and making hot tea month after month.

Love is when he accepts you with all of your packaging including your 6 month old son (at the time) and raises him like his own :’)

Love is when is … when he hugs you, everything else disappears.
…a day off, a fireplace, a crappy movie, a mattress in the living room, and the FH.

Love is making sure no matter what, that we never go to bed angry, even though one may still be upset, it will be smoothed over at least a bit before we fall asleep 🙂

Love is when he comes home from a bachelor party at 10 30 at night because he knows how much I hate strip clubs.
Love is when I wake up everymorning to make him a lunch, so he can sleep a little longer.
Love is when he told me I looked beautiful, 10 hours into labour, hair a mess, naked, sweating, and perma frown marks on my face.
Love is when you support eachother, in even the dumbest decisions, because you know how important it is to the other person.
Love is apologizing to end a fight, even though you know in your heart, they were wrong.

Love is when your favorite past time is cuddling and have names for your different kinds/positions of cuddles.

These are all so awesome!
Love is when my grandfather called my grandmother’s family’s radio show every Saturday night just to have her sing him his favorite song before he went to bed.

Love is thinking that a slightly-hairy man booty is actually…. cute.
(first thing that came to mind after looking over at SO napping on the couch wearing loosely-fitting boxers.. lol!)

@Ms. Library: Ok, so that one made me tear up!!
Woo ok, I’m alright now.
Love is when my Hubby (then Boyfriend or Best Friend ) worked an 11-7AM shift that he hated and I made it a tradition to go see him at about 12midnight every weekend so that he’d feel better.
Love is when you see them and all you do is sigh!

Awwww this thread is a huge heart warmer!!!
Love is an evening in front of the fireplace curled up with cats and your favourite shows.
Love is when he calls you “Beautiful” as a nickname and you know he means it every single time.
Love is when you accept each other for all your quirks, flaws, and baggage, and see that that’s what has made you who you are and love each other all the more for it.
Love is watching your grandfather sit with your grandmother each afternoon in her nursing home, telling her about all their travels, friends, and moments in life (big and small) knowing that she’ll forget it in 10 minutes, but being happy with holding hands, drinking coffee, chatting and laughing, just being in love 60 years later.

Love is being able to go to sleep angry, and wake up the next morning still knowing the person sleeping next to you is the one you want to wake up with every morning.
