I don’t know many couples who are young and married like myself, but the few I do know are old souls. My question is, Can love last forever when it’s young people getting their chance at it? I believe it’s possible, but I think love can be categorized as many different things.
I once had seen this old quote, it says something about finding the right person to suffer for, because love is going to hurt you anyway. I found that interesting, but with older people I felt that it might’ve applied to them more.
I could be wrong, but being young and in love can be a beautiful thing. When you both can communicate about everything, and set boundaries that’s where the magic happens. For young couples in their early twenties, I feel like we struggle with a few things. Here’s what I found to be true about what puts a hinderance on young love:
- We’re not as creative as we should be in the relationship. I understand that we’ve become this modern generation where everything is already done for us, but that can be a bad thing. What ever happened to going out to the garden and picking fresh flowers for the lady? Maybe even a picnic, where the food isn’t store-bought but made tenderly with love? It makes a huge difference, when the date is original and thought up by someone we love.
- We do too much texting and calling. It’s nice to hear from our significant other at least once a day, but please don’t keep smothering each other. How do you expect to grow and accomplish if you’re constantly smothering each other? I’m not saying don’t talk, I’m saying it would be nice to leave little love notes and just let it simmer with your honey. I can’t lie -I get tired of phone calls and text messages, but if he leaves me a note then it’s something that I truly appreciate and thrive on.
- We wait too late to express our concerns. Communication is key! Don’t think that being petty is key; because we live in a generation where being petty is a trend (sadly). When you can find sincerity and room to be mature with each other, it makes for a healthy relationship. Stop looking at everything as “an eye for an eye”, because it will destroy the love that you do have in your relationship.
Older couples have seasoned love, and for young people it’s a fresh take on things. I believe that it takes time to achieve that kind of goal, but it’s possible. A seasoned love is a great quality kind of love; it’s a series of tests given to the couple that aren’t easy. It’s hurdles that tests your love for each other, in seeing how much you can withstand together and still make great things happen!
