True Love

5 Oct

“True Love” is a term that really doesn’t mean anything.  Its exact meaning is imprecise, but it often connotes love that is simply meant to be, love that cannot be denied, love that will transcend all attempts to keep the lovers apart.  If a relationship lasts 50 years or so, we might say “it was true love that made their marriage last.”  OK, but what if we dropped the word “true” and simply said “love made their marriage last.”  Or how about if we got really honest and said something like “During their 50 years of marriage, they knew good times and really hard times.  Sometimes they drove each other crazy.  Sometimes they fought like cats and dogs.  But they had enough maturity, enough tenacity, and enough wisdom to know that they could resolve their issues and stay together.”  That lacks the heady quality of “true love”, but in our humble opinion, it’s ultimately a lot more satisfying.
