The Price of Admission

Dan Savage talking about what makes a relationship work long term.
I really do love his pragmatic, though still romantic, approach to love.

It is a fearful thing to love what Death can touch.

I enjoyed this and agree. When I first met my husband, I thought he was really weird. If anyone had suggested to me that I would someday end up blissfully married to him, I would have thought they were mad. I'm so very glad I gave myself the chance to learn to know all the beauty and goodness within him vs my first impressions. Turns out I like weird.

Thank you for sharing, Bunny!

LOVED this!
So sad that it is a lesson that we often learn too late.
