A few days ago, someone wrote to Dear Abby about love. It is worth repeating.
“Love is more than an emotion. Love is a choice and a commitment.”
Love is a great investment.
“Guard against narrowness and jealousy which confine a wife or husband to restricted behavior. Home is not a boundary of the affections, but is a framework from which to grow spiritually. It is beneficial never to want all the attention and time of your partner. Circulate happiness and compassion in the community to promote the sweet interchange of confidence and love, but be sure not to generate a wandering desire for incessant amusement outside the home circle.”
