This week we're bringing you a collection of stories that deal with enduring... more like enjoying the test of time together. There are a few stories in here that are tear-jerkers in the very best way. You have been warned. Now go make some memories!
1. Enduring Love
This couple has learned to support each other throughout the years despite having to endure extreme physical adversity. Warning: Do not watch this video if you aren't ok with shedding some tears.
2. What Happened When I Had Sex Every Day For a Year
When a relationship has a fantastic sex life, it adds that extra little silver lining to even the smallest moments of life. But when the sex life is suffering, it can reverberate negativity, induce insecurity, spread doubt and resentment, and even straight up destroy relationships.
Brittany went on a one year mission to regain her confidence, and reinvigorate the passion between her and her husband. In this inspiring story, in under a year, this one couple resurrected their stale sex life and their relationship as a whole.
3. A Letter From Fred
96-year-old Fred wrote a song for his wife as a response to a local singer/songwriter competition. Fred's wife, Lorraine, had recently passed away after 75 years of marriage. Listen to the story of his relationship and his song:
4. The Loveliest Short Story You Will Read Today
Read the story of a couple that meets on the subway in New York that was published in one of the most unusual places you could imagine... Craigslist. It's a fantastic read. I honestly didn't think it would be that great, but after I started reading, I couldn't stop. It's a fantastic work of amateur fiction.
5. How To Tell Love From Passion
One of my favorite websites, Brain Pickings, shows off an awesome book illustrated by James Thurber, one of the most beloved artists from The New Yorker. The book is entitled "Is Sex Necessary?" The article is definitely worth checking out... and if you feel so inclined, the book as well.
