      If it's one thing I learned from watching relationships and seeing how old people turn out. Love is good at first but it will run out it seems. I say if two people who love each other don't have command interests that bind them, there is no future.


      Would you agree with that?

      My grandparents. On my moms side at least the only thing they had in common was sitting outside. Otherwise they chat when they ate supper and otherwise sat in their own rooms doing their own thing hardly interacting.

      relationships are more than love,and i dont think it runs out,trust loyalty,are the main factors i believe,and as we get older we still love but we then feel content,which is a great factor

      Well it's run out for my parents. And I don't see much love between older people as I do with younger people.

      Just because older people are not all over each other doesn't mean they don't love each other :)

      Love comes in stages. Young people have a lot of 'passion' that need to rub and constantly feel and enjoy the other person. Many things are new and exciting. Older people don't have the same energy and develop other ways to show their love, they are more likely to keep it between them, even pecks are odd to see between old couples but what do we know that happens behind closed doors?

      I can't say I cannot relate to what you say though, as I've too seen the love flame extinguish from marriages close to me as time goes by. However that is not because of age or because they passed too many years together. Love is like any kind of relationship things you do and say affect your partner and a healthy relationship requires not only love but trust, commitment and communication. Many marriages break because of disloyalty or the couple not taking interest in the other person activities because they are too busy with their own.

      I am positive you can reach old age and still be completely into love.
