In the last period i've wandered about the existence of love... My doubt are growing since i've started my way to became lawyer. I see everyday married couple divorcing or at least remaining linked just cause they don't have enought money to separate. Childrens also in a lot of cases helps to keep two person in the same family. But is this real love? I mean, not what u feel in the first period u see ur new gf, but after several years.... It seems all couples becames a sort of society after long time and that's not what holliwood movies have show us!!! I'm not sure anymore love exists..... Is there somebody married from a lor of years? Do u believe in love???

I do believe in love. I married my husband over 25 years ago, and I have never stopped loving him. He feels the same way. Many of my friend were lucky enough to find true love also. The trouble with all the divorces today is that no one wants to work at a good marriage. It does take work. It takes compromise, it takes sharing, communication and respect. It can't be all about one person, it has to always be about the couple. Many people lose sight of this because people always know how they feel, but do not always know how thier spouse feels. Many couples forget the reasons they fell in love in the first place. Many couples do not love each other to begin with, there is a difference between love and infatuation.

I think what u've said could be true in some situations....but.... don't u think sometimes people just fears to stay alone and to live a lonely life? If u could admit that u could admit as well that a lot of people whats to believe they're in love just cause it could be a sort of shield against the every-day life. To be single is not easy (as it's common to think) and maybe for some of us to find peace in a dream call Love could be easier. I'm not talking of ur case Sylvrrain, just generally talking ;)

my parents are married for about 30 years and they've an argument three or four times a week.. my elder sister is separating from his husband in this period.. and also some aunts and uncles of mine have often arguments.. i think that many years later the marriage two people can feel respect and affect each other and have passion moments of course.. but for me love doesn't exist anymore.. or not as it was.. but maybe there are couples who love eachother also after many years.. but it's rare.. anyway.. i'll say you it in the future! when i'll be married for ages!

love exists but is not easy to find it out.In our society there is no time for love.We have to run up and down,work fast,study fast so love is put in the corner. For this ,peopole find the first girl/man and marry him/her..even if he/she doesn't know if love that person!
