In appreciation, we want to offer some general advice about the longevity of love.
Dr. John Gottman states in the final chapter of What Makes Love Last? that the best advice he can offer any couple is to “revere each other and be grateful that you are in each other’s life.”
True love is woven out of honoring and understanding each other’s unique gifts, vulnerabilities, and eccentricities. Your journey is not going to be like any other couple’s, and that’s how it should be.
The first step toward nurturing true love is to recognize what it looks like for you, with all its imperfections and complications. The second is to honor it.
