Being 'in Love' is magical and when it happens to us we feel like it will last forever. We are exempt from the problems of our parents and we vow to be perfect roll models to our children, who in turn will watch and learn from us, growing up strong and free from the inhibitions and insecurities that we had to deal with. This of course is the nature of falling in love. It's slightly illusory. But it creates a platform from which the other sometimes deeper kind of loves can develop. Being 'in love' is an enviable position to be in. The whole world is more colourful and meaning is found just being in the other persons presence. It should be enjoyed and not be looked down upon as something of less value than the other loves.
As with many things, the feeling of being 'in love' inevitably subsides - and is replaced by a deeper more meaningful bond - a good thing. Can you imagine what sort of chaos would arise from a world full of people who saw everything through the eyes of lovers!.....Christ
