True Love Does Last — Scientific Proof

By January 6, 2009

Follow me on:

There's a diamond commercial on television that shows a young couple walking quickly and passing an elderly couple holding hands and walking slowly. The message conveyed is that true love lasts. Couples in long term marriages know this. Now scientists are saying it too.

About time! Couples like us who have been married a long time still feel passion and wobbly knees.

According to John Harlow and Brendan Montague, a scientific team from Stony Brook University in New York scanned the brains of new lovers and couples married 20 years. "Brain scans have proved that a small number of couples can respond with as much passion after 20 years as most people exhibit only in the first flush of love."

"The findings overturn the conventional view that love and sexual desire peak at the start of a relationship and then decline as the years pass."

Our pastor spoke about these findings in Sundays’ sermon. His message – “This is news?”
I have to say that I agree with him. I’ve loved my husband for the last 21 years and I see no end in sight. It’s deep and it’s real to both of us.

This is absolutely true. I have found the love of my life and there’s no doubt in my mind that I will love her til death do us part and even past that.
