Love comes in many languages. Sometimes it's not that you don't love someone, but it's just that you each express love differently and the communication is not clear. Some people express love with carriage rides, candlelight dinners, or flowers. Some people express it with a funny card or a hand written note. Other people express love by cooking a meal for you, or packing your lunch everyday. And yet some may iron your shirt or make sure your car is safe to drive.
Some people express it with a hug and a kiss and others with a piece of jewelry or clothes. There are so many ways to express love, and they are each viable. Some women like to compare their husbands to other people's husbands, and some men like to compare their wives to other people's wives. Maybe comparing is not the best thing to do. The person you fall in love with is the person for you . . . not for someone else . . . or else . . . they wouldn't be with you. You marry who someone is and not who that person may become or who you want to change that person into.
Love is so personal. It may be universal, but it has numerous expressions. However you express love is fine for who you are. Just always express love because it is the essence of every gift you give. And give the gift without conditions because then it is pure.
