The First Passage – Young Love, the first two years
The Second Passage – Realistic Love, the third through tenth year
The Third Passage – Comfortable Love, the eleventh throught the twenty-fifth year
The Fourth Passage – Renewing Love, the twenty-sixth through the thirty-fifth year
The Fifth Passage – Transcendent Love, thirty-six years and thereafter.
Looking at this list makes makes me look back the young love years of our marriage and my heart is full of hope even as I look forward to the next passages that I am yet to tread with dear husband. I hope to expound on each passage and their dynamics in our next entries. 🙂
