Who doesn’t love a good love story, one that whisks you away into all the fun parts of relationships–the stolen glances, the clumsiness, the first time he or she calls you back, the moment when a first date becomes a second, third and then fourth; the stop-you-in-your-tracks I love you, and the part where they live happily ever after. Perhaps we love watching love because in an hour-and-half long film we get to skip all the hard parts or montage over them. But the thing is, the hard parts might not be as scary as we think. We spoke with five people in long-term relationships and asked them “What’s one thing people should know about love that no one really says?” Here are there answers.

Someone once said, ‘we were born’ to love. And although that 50%-of-marriages-end-in-divorce statistic gets frequently thrown around, there are relationships out there that give us hope and reason to believe that we were indeed meant to share life with someone special. Gala and Mahmoud Daftary, and Michael and Gloria Hubner are two of those relationships, each couple being married for over 40 years. In a short conversation with these two pairs, their adoration and mutual respect for each other comes across immediately, as does a sense of a life filled with big and small beautiful moments.
As part of our celebration of long lasting love, we asked these two duos what’s made their marriages last as long as they have. (If you’d like to say I love you longer this Valentine’s Day, consider getting your special someone three months of flowers.)
