Love is a beautiful thing but it's a process - it's something that takes time, it's about compromise. To me, love means that you want to dedicate your life to someone - in my case, my husband. Yes, there are (and will be) times that it's hard to love him, times when I question our love towards each other, but also times when I love him so much that I can explode.
Love is something so important to me and I found it with my husband. Throughout our relationship, I've learned that everyday you have to work at love. Sure, there are days that I don't want to show love but I made a commitment to love him unconditionally for the rest of my life.
If you're married or in a relationship, you should enter with the expectation that love is hard; but it's amazing at the same time. Not everything is going to go as planned, you're going to face challenges, you're going to argue, you're going to experience milestones and life together but at the end of the day you have your best friend...you're on the same team!
