The other day I heard that tired old thing. "Love means never having to say you are sorry."
All I'm going to say about that is No It Doesn't!
Love means seeing your partner at his or her worst and it's alright.
Love means not getting your way this time and it's alright.
Love is sometimes needing to stand up for yourself and it's alright.
Love means the tight abs are gone and it's alright.
Love is not perfect, but it is kind. Love does not suffer idiots, for love of self is as important as love of others. (Sometimes more.)
Love means You Should Pick Up Your Stuff! and ....well....maybe not that one.
Love, and all mature relationships, are Give and Take. More Give than Take.
Hope you pick people who are Also More Give Than Take. For that balance is important. Teach the Young Ones to be More Give Than Take and to pick others who are More Give Than Take.
Remember to love.
