Most people would say it’s the most important thing in their life as all people really have when the money, the possessions and whatever is all gone, is people. Whether or not true love is the most important thing is subjective, but certainly meeting people and a degree of companionship is the most rewarding thing of life.

Being fortunate to have found the person I am madly in love with in my life for all of my life is the most important thing to me. When we met, we both had nothing..if we lost everything except each other and our children, we would be fine. I am honored that he chose me. I am grateful fir the live we share between ourselves, for our children, extended family and friends. Love is a blessing that makes life worth living.

By the way…. It’s our fifteenth wedding anniversary today. Happy anniversary Gooch! I love you all the muches forever!

@mz—Congratulations. If only we could all be so fortunate.

I, for one, am. I have two loves in my life. And they are the most important parts of my life.

Happy Anniversary mzgator and gooch! You are both such wonderful people. I wish you many more years of happiness together.

Like poser, I’ve had two loves in my life. I can’t imagine my life without either of them.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

you would want a person who you love to love someone else not you, and say that they love you, i’ve been there before.

When true love results in happy marriage, the benefits are tangible and measurable. Here is some data from the Mayo clinic:

“The benefits of a healthy marriage have been carefully studied for decades. Statistically, people who are happily married live longer than do their single counterparts. They have lower rates of heart failure, cancer and other diseases and develop tighter networks of emotional support.

According to one Harvard University study, married women are 20 percent less likely than are single women to die of a variety of causes, including heart disease, suicide and cirrhosis of the liver. Married men enjoy an even greater benefit — they’re two to three times less likely to die of such causes than are single men. Statistics have also shown married people are less likely to be victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and other violent crimes.

The upsides of healthy marriages — those which enjoy strong commitment and open lines of communications — span both mental and emotional well-being. One study states definitively that the happiness of married people is significantly greater than that of the unmarried and remains true throughout the entire life cycle.”

My husband and I have been married just over 10 years, but we’ve been together for more than 13. True love is someone who makes bad times better just by being there. The good times are better, too, but good times are always good. That’s why they call them “good times”. :^> I just don’t see a time in our future where we won’t have something to talk about with each other no matter what happens.

Happy Anniversary, mzgator & Gooch!

If love isn’t TRUE, then it isn’t LOVE… just some facsimile or delusion. True love is all that matters… the rest is just superficial.

@Mzgator Congratulations on your anniversary.

mzgator's avatar

Thanks so much to all of you for the good wishes. Gooch and I often speak about many of you, and we wish we could meet you one day. You are all such a great group. Thanks so much for allowing us to make friendships with you!

I for one believe in true love but some people are fortunate to expirence and some aren’t. I myself have not been one of the fortunate ones… But I’m waiting…

gooch's avatar

Thanks to all who wished us Happy Anniversary. My true love will be with me tonight now that I have completed my shift tonight. She completes me. I really would do anything for her.

I think true love grows and gets even better with age. I love my wife more than I ever imagined was possible, and then she says or does something simple that makes me love her even more. She is the sun in my sky. I have been married for nine and a half years, and have been friends with her since 1983. She was 11, I was 14 going on 15 when we met. Our older brothers are best friends and we met through them. I thank the stars every day that we met. We make each other better people. I couldn’t imagine not having her in my life now, knowing how great each day is. She makes the bad days good, and the good days wonderful. I hope everyone has the same luck and happiness someday. Belated congratulations to gooch and mzgator! Sounds like they have it too.

There’s a fine line between true love and a stalking conviction.
