Agree! Love grows with time. I'm proud to say my husband and I have developed such a strong relationship over the years that I can't imagine a life without him


What a beautiful article. A few of these made me thing of my brother's relationship. He and his girlfriend met when they were little and now they're the sweet couple ever. They're both 18 and I haven't seen such a lovely duo ever!
