Prioritizing Love

Now, I know what you’re thinking: If it is meant to be, it will just happen. I don’t want to be (seem) desperate.  Love comes when you let go, when you are not looking.  [Really??]

Study after study has shown that love relationships have a huge impact on our psychological, economic, and physical well-being.  Having a life partner can create a higher sense of self-worth; provide intimacy and emotional support, which fulfills the deepest human need for connection, and leads to greater wealth and economic stability.

As a result, married people may be happier, live more satisfying lives, and have fewer psychological problems, including depression.  Many researchers say that these factors lead to better physical health, greater health-seeking behavior, and lower rates of alcoholism.

Here’s the big take-away: For over 100 years studies around the world have shown that married people live long and enjoy a higher quality of life than those who aren’t partnered!  With everything a healthy love relationship has going for it, why let anything hold you back from choosing love as a top priority in your life?  – from Love in 90 Days by Diana Kirschner, Ph
