The basic understanding of love in marriage is that true and genuine love counts in decision making. In the marriage context, the feeling of love means that others know the person in question. They partake of the things which are magnificent and great for them as they see their shortcomings and encourage them towards attaining the best out of the systems (Lauer R. & Lauer J. 45).
Passion refers to a being-state. It addresses the temporary phase upon which an individual feels complete euphoria and ecstasy. It does not last forever and this fact enables people to accomplish more (Lauer R. & Lauer J. 34). On a similar note, love can be referred to a state of living due to the fact that irrespective of the passionate times can appear to be love, true love will be there to last.
As integrity and honesty, general thoughtfulness and with concern for others, continue sweeping through humanity, there is much brought into light previously hidden from people from those exercising power and authority in love while they are followed by self-serving agendas towards protecting and enrich their cronies and themselves (Lauer R. & Lauer J. 40).
Premarital cohabitation enables couples experience the “trial marriage” prior making real commitment. Cohabitation becomes an increasingly natural component of courtship rituals which are transitions from the stage of dating into marriage (Lauer R. & Lauer J. 67). Following common sense, it seems that people cohabitating prior marriage is more prepared for about marriage as they had lived together.
In most societies, the element of communication in life partners is considered to be an essential element (Lauer R. & Lauer J. 70). The common areas of clashes and differences need to be discussed across the potential partnerships to establish understanding prior the launch of life altogether.
