Good statement! Love is the emotion and is a verb in a relationship. Love is an intentional action because of a commitment to the relationship. The friendship and the commitment are what will hold a relationship together when the emotion of love ebbs and flows in lifes joyful and difficult circumstances alike. I don't always like (emotion) my wife so much, eventhough we have been blessed to be married for 35 years, but that is really no indicator as to whether we will be together for the rest of our lives. It is the mutual friendship bond and the commitment level; "I will until!".
