A forever new relationship

I have been with my husband for 14 years and we have been married for 5 of those years. I have always been one of those people who wondered how my parents could always seem to love eachother so much, especially after they celebrated their 25th anniversary. Now that I myself am married, with two beautiful daughters, I think I know why. I wake up every morning next to the same man, sleep next to him every night and spend almost every free moment of my life with him. You would think that after spending some much time together, we would beging to feel bored with one another but we don't. We love each other more now than we did the day we married. One of the reasons for that is because we are alwayas learning about each other. Even after all this time, there are things about each other that we are still learning. Another reason is because we share so many interests with each other. But mostly I think it is because no matter how much time we spend together, we love each other more with each passing moment. We have made so many wonderful mememories together and I know that we BOTH look forward to making more over the years. My husband still finds the time to tell me that he loves me several times a day, he also makes sure that he shows me that he loves me in the little things that we do together. I also love him because even though we have been together for so long, he still looks at me like he is seeing me for the first time. I only have to look into his eyes to know that he loves me like no other, and he knows the same thing when he looks in my eyes. I know that I will spend the rest of my life loving him more and more, and if there is an afterlife, my love for him will continue there as well. So what about you? Why do you think that your relationship does so well? Do you think that the person you are with now, will be the one that you grow old with? Why or why not?

Hi Crivas. I understand the way your love with your husband works so good. I was with a man for 12 years and he was a brow beater everyday. He made me feel like I wasn't good enough. I prayed everyday that God would either show me a way out of that relationship or God would end my life. But seemed like when I prayed about it for about 6 months he was a good guy to be around just always drunk. So we brought property here in MO. And after a few years here I was so sick of hearing his mouth so I prayed about it again and that day I met the man I am happily married too now. I went on a diet and lost a lot of weight. My husband now asked my ex if he would help him do some work and my ex told him to take me to help him. So I started working with my now husband and we have been working together for almost 4 1/2 years. We have a great working and non working life together. We are together almost 24/7 and it is still as happy as it was the first time. He makes me feel like a Queen daily. He never misses a chance to tell me how much he appreciates and loves me. We will grow old together and will be together in the after life.

Currently, I am not in a relationship but I just wanted to say that you have written a truly beautiful post. I am sure I will find that one for me as well that I can grow old with and learn about every day. I am truly more of a relationship kind of girl. Thank you for such a lovely and uplifting post.
