Dr. Laura on marriage

I agree with her on this one, do you?
Love the way she explains this...

Yep, I agree. It's worked with us, and we just celebrated our 41st.

Yes, I DEFINITELY agree! If we only acted when we had those feelings, a lot of marriages would be in trouble. What is comforting to know is that our husbands do those same things, and I am just so very thankful for our almost 34 years of marriage and a husband that is the best. Thanks for sharing this.

Right on! Dad and Susan

We've been married almost 37 years, and it's never been much work to love my husband. But I do agree that those who can hang together through the tough times will appreciate the wonderful times even more.

And the real love, the one that takes years to develop, is in your shared history.

I needed to hear that today, Jill. I do agree that you have to do actions and that brings feelings! Something I for sure need to work on but just realized it again just now while listening to that....Thank you again!

Amy Nielson said...

I agree as well.

Eileen said...

I 100% agree!
And there are many times and many different situations that have arose in my life where I have done just that!

Nice post!
All the best to you,

Well, I'd say that I chose to love Tyler. Neither of us felt like we "fell" in love. But, we became good friends, and decided that we should try being more than that.

In fact, my initial reason for wanting to date Tyler was that he treated me well, and since the boy I had been dating before was NOT treating me well, I wanted to have a good experience.

Obviously, I really liked what I saw.

I guess I just really believe in agency. Even in matters of the heart.
