My Idea Of Real Love

I can’t answer for most men... I have been with my sweetheart, partner yes my wife 42 years married for 38 years and I would say that commitment would be the best word That I could use for what is important in a relationship, along with sharing, and taking the bad with the good…. You see my wife has been suffering with Multiple Sclerosis for 36 years of our 38 year marriage and suffered she has…. She is now suffering with dementia and is a quadriplegic, and I her caregiver. ……That is what real true love is… I’m sure; if the tide were turned she would do the same for me…. Not all men are bad; they sure get the bum Rapp sometimes………. Standing by your partner when times are tough…. That is the most important thing of all.  That is my Idea of real love... What say you????

I applaud and admire your loyalty and obvious love for your wife. Continue to do your best for her as I am sure you shall reap added rewards. Like wilting, I too dedicated a great part of my life to a man who showed little appreciation. I do not live with regret however. I thank the Lord for blessing me with a good heart and I pray that the day will come when I too shall enjoy the genuine love and loyalty of a man who I will shower with all the love and compassion that is within. God bless!

Sounds like a good guy to me! What inspiration!

I would like to have a man like u beside me. Congratulations¡¡

My dear friend ......So are you such a rare gem to give your all and get nothing in return ......But one thing God knows and watches over you ......I pray for your happiness....Walter

I certainly agree with you my friend. You take the good with the bad. When my ex got meningitis...I was there to care for him...when shortly after he got Bells Palsy I was there morning and night doing physio on him. When his ex girlfriend committed suicide and he was devastated...I was there to comfort him... When I got depression he turns his back and walked away!<br />
So you see my friend you are a rare gem.
