Growing Old Together

For me, the idea of growing old together indicates a relationship that bends, changes and grows with the passage of time. Wisdom is gained, priorities and dreams are built and objectives are met. Love brings out the best in people as individuals. The connection between the couple becomes the way they define their lives. As jobs, careers, and family concerns transformation, the couple is able to work as a team to be understanding and flexible, so the relationship (their lives) will flourish.

Love as a dynamic process. For me, that means that there is a relationship that flexes, changes and grows as people mature, experience happens upon them, priorities and dreams are built and goals are met. Love brings out the best in people as individuals. The relationship between them becomes the way they define their lives. As jobs, careers, and family concerns change, people are able to work as a team to be understanding and flexible so the relationship (their lives) will flourish.

Dynamic process of love equals a sharing of emotion, trust, and growth of relationship. Growth is increasing ability of a couple to live symbiotically, enjoy each others company, trust each other with more secrets, depend on each other in more crises over the years, in raising children and taking care of aging relatives. It’s about growing old together, and long-term investments like real estate and children.

Its about growing old together, with the emphasis on together.
