Do you have the same intensity of love even after so many years of marriage?

I have been with my husband for just over 3 years. We have been married for just over 2 of those years. I can honestly say that I love him more today than I did when we got married, but our relationship is not as intimate as it used to be. We have fallen into the habit of doing our own things until about bedtime and not really spending quality time together. With work and the kids, it is nearly impossible for us to have even 2 minutes of time alone. We don;t go out anywhere because we can't really afford it and to be honest, I would rather spend time alone at home. It is something that we have to work through as a couple, but our love for each other is growing stronger every day.

Not to sound clinical but I think we all can relate to the high level of passion early in our relationships that seems to fade over time. Research has shown this is linked to a set of endorphins that do drop off over time. But, the lucky ones still hold their relationship in incredibly high value. I cannot imagine not going to a movie, a restaurant, dancing, on a cruise with anybody else. I use to have really strong friends but since I have been married, I prefer to be with her. It's a different kind of love, a more valuable kind. Now wheather you kiss more or less may very well depend upon your own attitudes about intimate relationships in general. What is that phrase, "keep the fires hot" or something like that?

Well from my experiences of listening to my friend's talk about their marriage life have most thing in common.They say the love they had so long back is not anywhere to be seen.This make them get fed up with their life's but some are satisfied too because they have had the true love instead of the games of love as it is called.

It looks one of the fanciest statements. From my experiecne the love and relationship with the wife and husband will increase as years pass. The reason is that the children. Children are the bonding power betweem between the wife and husband.

I just celebrated 20 yrs of marriage & I have to say that while the excitement of a "new love" is no longer there, there is so much more. The intensity is actually more because we know each other so much more. We have trust and security and makes our love even stronger, therefore our passion for each other stronger.

I have been with my man since i was 14 years old, and i love him more today than ever. The intensity of a new love is gone, but it is replaced with a comfortable, secure love. Over the years we have become one.And even after all these years our lips meet with just as much love now as they did before.
