Love is better than wine as it ages. One of the best things about aging with a partner is that your love becomes deeper and more meaningful.
The youth seem so obsessed with staying young that they don’t realize aging brings great things between people. Older people show the younger generation that love is about so much more than worldly things. We’ve got a look at how love shows itself in amazing ways as you age.
No Place for Games
Playing hard to get and making someone jealous just to get their attention has no place in older relationships. There are no games because playing them is too trivial. These relationships have a solid base built on compassion and courtship. You don’t need to worry about all of the games that stem from dating around or worrying about what your parents think of your partner.
Living Chapters of Life
There comes a day when older partners can tell stories that go back decades. They can entertain those around them with funny stories about their life. They rack up wisdom to share about their experiences along the way. Even if couples meet later in life, they’re able to share endless stories about their chapters in life. The ironic thing is that most elderly couples will tell you they never run out of things to talk about even if they’ve been together for 60 years.
The Creation of Family
One of the biggest perks of growing a family together is to see that family grow its own wings. Older couples get to enjoy their grandchildren and great-grandchildren. It’s a different feeling for many because they get to enjoy it without the pressure of raising children. They get to look at generations of their family with a smile knowing they made this happen.
Older couples don’t have the crazy schedule they had when the kids were growing up. They now have time to enjoy their life together. They have the money they saved all those years in their 401k. They can do whatever they want on their own time. They can visit the grandkids whenever they feel. They can travel overseas whenever they want. They are on their own schedule to enjoy life together.
Living in the Present
Older couples realize that life isn’t all about reaching some point in life where they think they have it “made.” They aren’t worried about when they’ll make a certain amount of money or when they will be able to retire. They have lived it. It’s now about seizing the days. They also realize life isn’t about the stereotypical older people who sit on the front lawn yelling at kids. They live life to the fullest each day together.
The Secret of Life
Elderly couples have figured out one of the biggest secrets in life. As their cognitive and physical abilities start to decline, they increase the ability to find satisfaction in their life. They aren’t as worried as younger couples about material possessions. They find happiness in minimal things in life. They realize that as long as they have love, they have enough.
Society pushes the idea that love is for youth enamored with sex and lights. In reality, older couples have the upper hand. Whether a couple has been together for decades or meets later in life, their years give them experience and wisdom to have a deep, passionate love life together. Aging is a privilege.
