Love too much?



Can two people love each other too much?

As my wife and I moved into our third decade of marriage, especially after I retired, we became more focused on just each other. She had no girlfriends, unless you count her manicurist, or the nurse at the doctor’s she’d info-dump on. We didn’t go to dinner or play cards with other couples. After I left active participation in the Army Reserve, I no longer had drinking buddies, or any buds at all. We went to church, but didn’t get involved in activities.

But none of this really bothered us. Our days were spent happily with each other, doing things we both enjoyed. We were complete in our love.

Did we love too much? I don’t know, but I would not have traded one minute to be with anyone else.
