Love is often a fickle thing, and it can be hard to capture it or describe it. But many of us are creatures that crave romantic affection, and desire it to come our way at least once in our life.
That is, of course, assuming you aren’t aromantic! But even if you are an aromantic, it is incredibly likely that you will crave some kind of close human contact anyway.
There is something incredibly wonderful and assuring about an emotionally close relationship where you know your deepest and most vulnerable self can be shared in absolute safety for the rest of your life.
Of course, the platonic equivalent of such an amazing relationship exists, but many of us fantasize about and desire a romantic equivalent to this sort of relationship.
It is an understandable sentiment – for many of us, the desire to experience romance is something that is deep-seated in us.
It is simply something that many of us think will make us whole! Alas, finding the right partner that will help us create a relationship that fulfills both our needs and our partner’s needs is hard.
What more is trying to get the right chemistry going, and to maintain that closeness and affection over the years. Romantic relationships, essentially, are incredibly hard work.
Thus in our busier and busier lives, it is easy to see how finding the right person can be difficult, and that is without even considering just how much effort and energy you will have to put into it as well.
So when we hear stories of people finding happiness and love, it is always one that warms our hearts.
A great example is the latest piece of news that has gone viral about a recently married couple.
There just happens to be one special thing about this special couple – the newly wedded husband and wife duo is a nonagenarian and octogenarian respectively, making them one of the oldest newlyweds you will ever meet!
