Courtney Carver recently celebrated 17 years of marriage with a post called “Simple Marriage and the Importance of Love.” Carver says:

“I’ve always had the mentality that love is not enough to sustain a “til death do us part” relationship, and while that may be true, without love, there is nothing.

  • Love may not solve an argument, but love gives you the patience to work through it.
  • Love may not ensure that you are always right, but love gives you the perspective to understand that being right isn’t important.
  • Love won’t stop you from saying hurtful things, but love demands a heart felt apology.
  • Love doesn’t make you less annoyed by the little things, but love will help you focus on what really matters.
  • Love doesn’t protect you from getting hurt, but love allows forgiveness.”
She then goes on to discuss five tips to have a successful marriage. Read the rest here:’ve always had the mentality that love is not enough to sustain a “til death do us part” relationship, and while that may be true, without love, there is nothing.
