Falling in love all over again

3 posts in this topic

Do you think, that in order to have a long, lasting and happy marriage, you have to fall in love with your spouse all over again and again and again?

 

If so, is that the case in your marriage over the years?

 

How does it work?

Is it hard work and it happens very self-conscious? Do you need to allow yourself to fall in love again with your spouse? Is it like a decision?

Or does it happen unexpectedly and you are surprised by yourself when it happens?

i'll be curious what the other Married's say here.... but YES i do fall in love again and again with my wife.   it's not that you fall out of love with your spouse in between, it's that life sort of runs the rhythm and you sort of lapse your eyesight a bit...   

 

and then one day, something completely inconsequential, something utterly mundane or "regular" just hits you a little differently.   it's a quiet sunday morning before church.   or it's the middle of the night and you can't sleep and you're just lying there but you're very aware of her and how she looks and feels next to you.   or she's just in another room absentmindedly working on the computer or puttering in the kitchen.  and she looks different.  she just hits the right note inside you.   or she raises just that ONE eyebrow at you... a bit mischievously.   or she smiles at you from across the room at a cocktail party or someone's house for dinner.  and it all just rushes.

 

i never fall out of love with my wife.   i never forget i love my wife.   but there are times when other things are so distracting or consuming that you forget to see just exactly how fortunate you are.  and then something easy and natural like a smile from across a room triggers it all back in you.
