I see a lot of elderly couples at my work and a lot of them are still so much in Love. Some of them are in there 60s, 70s even 80s. They been together for all there Life. I think it's great...Do you? Or do you think they missed out on life by being with only one partner

Some end up renewing their love after the children are grown and find they have more time again to spend with each other and they end up growing even closer and are at times more happier then before. No, I don't feel they are left out by just being with one partner. It is all how a person perceives life and it's meaning and then live. I know I miss out on life, but then I could probably do something to change that if I tried and worked hard enough. But sometimes I feel more at home online then I do in my own home. But the others..they probably renewed their love and found/find a new lease on life and live it to the fullest while they can. Live.Laugh.Love..

I think it's great. Even if they have only had one partner, I think they haven't missed out on anything. In my opinion, having more than one can often times makes life more confusing for couples and then there is the fact that they can feel as though they have to "live up" to another's example.

I really think it's great and every time I see some old people holding hands I wonder if they are high school sweethearts

Hey missy! And HELL NO!It those couples were lucky enough to find someone that they could spend that much time with and trulybe in love with them then God Bless! I envy them to have found someone to share their entire life with and still have that feeling for them! It's people like me who never found that someone who is missing something! It makes me sad that I never found that someone!

Elderly couples I think do enjoy life being together. With the mortality age becoming younger and younger, these elderly couples are lucky enough to have each other even at such age. They are not missing out on life, they are enjoying each other's company.

It is all about missing each other. See,when couple are on their early age,they tend to care for their children. They work for their financial needs. So,when they reached older age that is the only time they find more time with each other. I love to watch couples on their elderly age holding hands and talking in whispers. I can imagine how they've spent their younger years for their kids that,they've missed each other that much. Have a good weekend

in india,breaking up is not so common,it does have its advantages and disadvantages but a lot of couples now are trying to ape the west...here one doesnt give up on ones partner,they learn to love each other more and with passing years.

In some places you can't even get divorced...that would really suck to be with someone that you don't want to be with.

They are actually so lucky to have found such kind of love. There is no use having different partners throughout the lifetime if it is not true love. When true love is felt by two individuals, they do not have any desire to look for someone else, so they do not miss anything, instead they have in their lives a promise of forever...

I don't think that they missed out on life by being with just one partner. In fact, I think that they have enjoyed life to the fullest as they did have to face those break-ups and emotional problems which one has to deal with when he has many partners.

That's a good way of looking at it. I know I had my share of break ups and some of them weren't pretty. Now I'm in for the long haul
