Two couples who have lived through various Valentine’s Day seasons share how they’ve made their match succeed and how they met.

After 47 years of marriage, Bob & Lila recount their initial meeting and the proceeding six weeks that led to their on-the-fly marriage ceremony in Idaho. Jokingly, Lila says, “we haven’t killed each other yet” when describing the amount of time they’ve spent together and their shared interests.

Jon & Kathy, recently returned from a one year backpacking honeymoon in South America, recount their meeting at a party and food, the pleasure that always brings them back.

Interested in hearing more about love? Listen to Reflections on love and lovelessness…how do you define genuine love? « Malinali’s Blog This piece is a wonderful juxtaposition of chapter 1 of bell hooks’ book All About Love and a vox pop of students from Rudsdale High School in East Oakland who were asked, “What does love mean to you?”
