While the “older” couples that we see in pictures or on the train are cute, it does not mean they have mature love. Mature love has less to do with your age and more to do with how your love has evolved over time. It has to do with your willingness to love each other unconditionally and stay committed (even through the tough times.)

With that being said, I have seen many older couples that do not have mature love…not at all. On the other hand, I have seen couples that have only been married for 5, 10 or 15 years that are thriving in healthy relationships because they are very intentional about loving each other and are committed to making the marriage work. So even after the newlywed/honeymoon phase has ended, and even after the euphoric feeling of new love ends, these couples are able to evolve into a deeper more committed type of love…..a mature love.

Lamar and I have been married for 8 years now and I definitely see our love maturing as the years go by. And, I also know that we still have some growing and learning to do in our relationship (we are not quite babies….but more like young adults..lol.) So, in our quest to grow stronger in our marriage, we have been taking notes from couples that we admire and exhibit the type of mature love that we want in our relationship.

Have you ever come home to be greeted with a big hug and kiss? It feels good doesn't it? Well that is a feeling you should provide your wife on a consistent basis. Show her love and pour positive energy into her when she walks through that door. Let her know you missed her and you are happy to see her. Give her some attention and don't make it about sex. Taking these actions will create an environment that a woman wants to rush home to.
