I read about a study of folks who had been married over 21 years. The study took folks who said the flame had not gone out and ran some type of brain scan or test. The same test, done on a person high on cocaine, would light-up their brain on this machine. The study compared those who swore they were still passionately in love after 21 years of marriage; the comparison was the same, the longer married folk lit up the machine. The study was meant to show that passion dropped naturally after a few years, but the study came to the conclusion that the desire and passion in some folk never diminishes.
***Studies show that some folk live together because their religion commands it.
***Some stay together ‘for the children’s sake’.
***Some remain together because they are afraid of the stigma they see as attached to the separation.
***And then there are the couples who take the vow and are ‘in love’, they overcome the problems, they work out the big arguments, BUT they hold together and are glad they did, because the passion is still there.
***And then there is Sherry, she stays with me because I am good looking, wonderful, thoughtful, desirable, healthy, sexy, a great lover, tough, sensitive, passionate, marvelous, imaginative, brilliant and have a pretty bald head.
I am not usually wrong. So in this case I know that AT LEAST ONE of the above adjectives and/or SENTIMENTS is correct. The rest are for sure traits of my lovely wife. She sure lights up my brain!!!!
Thanks for coming by the log.
Too many couples marry for better, or for worse, but not for good.
When a man marries a woman, they become one; but the trouble starts when they try to decide which one
