This is really beautiful. These are all excellent tips; thank you for sharing them. May we all give and receive love so beautifully and peacefully.

I think appreciating what you've got is one of the real keys. It's the stuff songs are made of (..."you don't know what you've got till it's gone.")

Jay - Thank you! I'm so glad you liked the tips I brought up in this post. Love can be a tricky thing sometimes, but it's worth all of the effort we put into it.

J.D. - Very true. Many people are unappreciative of their loved ones and they often take a lot for granted when it comes to love. Being grateful for what you have is a great way to create strong bonds in your life.

Number 6 made my twizzle sizzle! What ever that means. But love is means to an end. This reminds me of the JFk k quote " Mankind must put and end to war. Or war will put and end to mankind" Lets start loving each other.

Jonathan - Hahaha, that comment cracked me up! I'm glad you particularly liked #6. I think a lot of people forget about how much true love really can overcome. Great quote. I'm glad you tied that into this post!

Ever since I married my husband, that passage makes me tear up. Being in love is hard work, but the best work :-)

"Love is everything it's cracked up to be…It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for." ~ Erica Jong

Michelle - Thanks for your comment! It sounds like you have a wonderful relationship with your husband, and I completely agree with you that all of the hard work for love is worth it.

CC - Great quote! Thanks for sharing it here. Love is absolutely a give and take, completely worth fighting for. So glad you found the post to be lovely. ;)

This is great advice. I love that bible quote. I think honesty is always a great way to create a strong bond with someone you love. I believe if you don't have that, then there is no bond.

Great post Dani. I think that love is a great thing. Respect and trust are the keystones for a loving relationship. I respect my wife and have regained trust in her. It is something that we both work on every day.

Susan - Thanks! I'm glad you liked the advice and the quote I chose to go along with it. Honesty is another great one and SO vital to having a strong bond.

Syd - Thanks, Syd! You've hit the nail on the head with the words "respect" and "trust." I haven't always had those things in my relationships and it's been a major problem. Now I realize that, in order to have a loving bond with someone, those two things are imperative. I'm glad you hear that you and your wife having a respectful, trusting relationship!

What a beautiful post! The bible reading you quoted was read at my wedding, and your post was a great reminder of all the important lessons about love that it shares. Very inspiring :)

Kevie - Thanks so much for the comment! :) I love getting them and it was exciting to see one from you! That's a great passage for weddings and so awesome that you used it at yours. I'm so glad you enjoyed reading the post I wrote about it and found it inspiring!
