Love is a Choice

I’ve never met a couple who got married hoping to make each other miserable.

You were ‘in love’ and you intended to love each other forever. So what happened? It’s not that you were insincere. But just maybe you expected love to go on without effort. The truth is, the ‘in love’ experience doesn’t last very long after the ceremony is over and real life sets in.

Once you come down off the emotional high, you must choose to express love in ways that are meaningful to your spouse. We tend to express love in ways that are meaningful to us. My book, The Five Love Languages has helped thousands of couples learn how to keep romantic love alive by learning to speak each other’s ‘love language’.
