Growing up, my parents were not my idea of a perfect couple. To my younger self, they seemed to fight alot over budgets and such mundane subjects like air-conditioning (Dad was always too hot while Mom was always cold). I understand now that I am married myself that fighting is part and parcel of a partnership. My parents may not be the ideal couple but they have a real relationship. It may not be perfect but it is solid, steady, and stands the test of time. After all, 55 years of marriage, eight children, 24 grand-children and 3 great grand-children, and they are still fighting and making up. If that is not true love, I don't know what is.
