    Seeing old people hold hands really warms my

    heart. It shows me that love may still exist, it shows me that people just don't give up on each other. I really hope I have something like that.

    I had seen an old English couple hold hands

    and take walks together.They had come to India for some work and were friends of my dad.You hardly see any Indian couples,esp.married for many years hold hands.But it is good as it increases intimacy between married partners.

    Stages Of Love

    So I remember sitting at a restaurant one night watching people eat ... yeah, I'm just weird that way ... but I noticed three couples. The first couple was in their 20's or so and looked like they were boyfriend/girlfriend. The second was a married couple in their 40's or so...

    It's Our Turn

    My wife and I are in our fifties. We (read that "I") have had issues over the last few years. We have gone through counseling for problems that I created. I am back in now due to some renewed stresses, but that is a different story in a different group. Through out the...

    Now a days the low communication levels on the

    They Make Me Believe That Love Still Exists

    I love looking at very old people holding hands or staring  at each other with tenderness. I want a love like this: a complicity that lasts over time. I think people overestimates the youthfulness' passion. Real love is when you want to care of someone for the rest of your life...

    The Hands Of Time

    Two nights ago I went to my great uncle's funeral visitation. There was no weeping, anguish, or loneliness. Instead, there were sad smiles and joyful tears mingled on faces as people reverantly and softly spoke of the family's " Love Story". You see, less than 48 hours before, my...

    How Wonderful to See

    It truly is an anomaly in a world such as ours these days to see a truly happy couple...divorce seems more common than having a dog. But to see an older couple holding hands...showering each other with kindness and affection just melts me. I believe it gives us hope that...

    Many, many years ago,

    we were walking along the banks of the Rhine at Speyer with our son, certainly less than four years old at the time. On seeing an old couple he came out with the cute quote "Look! Someone else's grandma and grandad"

    I want to talk to them about marriages.

    How did they last so long? What would they do in certain situations? Marriage isn't easy and I want to know how they have done it for so long.

    Old couples holding hands show me

    that true love can really last forever. Even when there's such a pathetically high divorce rate now.

    My parents. When my parents are out

    My grandparents have been married

    I love seeing this. Couples are old.

    . And still going strong. It's rare, too, to see this. Most couples just walk side by side... Or usually the man behind the woman, but when you see them holding hands, it shows respect, love, and affection. I want this someday!!

    A Forever Beauty

    It is simply beautiful couples that last. No matter how long, what counts is the intensity. Wanting to be together worth more than being together for 20 years or longer just for convenience. I know a relationship is a hard work and some should not last forever, but just this...

    It's Inspiring

    I adore seeing elderly couples hug, kiss, and hold hands. I say to myself, "I want to be like that someday, with the one I love." I think it shows me that true love has the ability to endure the test of time.
