if you had only one chance to prove your love for someone, what would you do?

i chanced upon this same question being asked on tv the other day, and it made me stop and think, what DID I do to prove my love for my husband? well, i was, in a manner of speaking, made to choose between my family and this guy i am going out with. this is where the one chance to prove my love for him came, and i did not hesitate to choose him over my family (even if it meant me and my mom having the biggest fight of our lives). to date, i still do not regret the manner in which i proved my love for him, since he gave me the most wonderful gift of all, our daughter (who's turning four months old come september one). and you know what the best part is? me and my mom patched out our fight now. she seems to have started to accept my husband as one of the family, and i DO hope it stays that way and get better in time. so, what have you done to prove your love to someone? or if you haven't done it yet, what are you willing to do just to prove your love? remember the condition: you'll only have ONE CHANCE to do whatever it is :)

I proved my love for the man I married simply by standing by his side and staying married. We've been married for 8 years. We've experienced beautiful times and some hellish ones I'd wish had never happened. But they did and I think they've made us stronger today because of it. I know so many others who would've ran the instant they smelled trouble but I just felt something inside that made me stay exactly where I was. I felt that our relationship was worth more than a quick run down to a divorce attorney. Now, we have a lot to be grateful for and a beautiful little boy to show for it. We're healthy, happy and we see it all as a blessing.

that is one inspiring story :) i wish my hubby and i would be like you and your husband. and i agree with you, if you think a relationship is worth saving, then the best you can do is stay where you are and know deep in your heart that this is the right thing to do, even if it does not feel good all the time :)

You're right, there are times when it doesn't feel so great. But the wonderful moments and memories that we have shared and continue on creating make it all worthwhile. I think God everyday for everything he's blessed me with. Of course you and your husband can succeed! It just takes a strong will, communication and determination. And love...can't leave that one out.

Oh well this may seem shallow to everyone but I am the type of person that cringe on dirty bathrooms, on decaying woods, on dogs, on cats. I have obsessions on things being in order and clean, and my husband is just the opposite, so I guess that made him believe that I really love him, I stick with him.
