First comes love, and then comes marriage. Then, well you know the rest of the song.
Since we were kids the idea of getting married because you’ve falling in love has been beaten into our brains. We’ve romanticized that moment when we fall in love, the feeling of butterflies in our stomach, and how love would then concur all.
All you need is love?
It would be great if it were that simple, but realistically speaking that initial stage of falling in love fades, and if you marry for love, you may divorce for a lack of it.
We all know that person who stayed in the wrong relationship because they loved the person. In their case, love should not have been enough.
Don’t get me wrong, love is important, and falling in love is one of the best feelings in the world, but what if you could choose to love someone instead of just falling for someone?
