This article on the Huffington Post, by Sheryl Paul, about marriage and love really spoke to me. She touches on the cultural narratives that would have us believe that when you find "the one" the heavens open up, the angels sing, and cupid slaps you on the butt - when in real life it can be quite different. You feel love, but it's so much more than that - it's how you choose to live your life once you've chosen to share that life with another person. 

"Love is action. Love is tolerance. Love is learning your partner's love language and then expressing love in a way that he [or she] can receive. Love is giving. Love is receiving. Love is plodding through the slow eddies of a relationship without jumping ship into another's churning rapids. Love is recognizing that it's not your partner's job to make you feel alive, fulfilled, or complete; that's your job. And it's only when you learn to become the source of your own aliveness and are living your life connected to the spark of genius that is everyone's birthright can you fully love another."
