How Do You Nurture Love?

Some time ago, a man asked me, “What happens to love after the wedding?” He went on to tell me that he had been married three times. Each time it had been wonderful before the wedding but shortly after, the honeymoon was definitely over! Does marriage destroy love? Not at all! However, if love isn’t nurtured, it will die a natural death.

So, how do you nurture love? Sometimes it’s a call just to say, “I love you,” a note tucked in a briefcase, a special dinner after a long hard week, volunteering to do a household task that you don’t normally do, or a small (or not-so-small) gift. All of those keep love alive. Don’t let anyone tell you differently—it’s the little things that count.
