The good reverend offers godly advice for a contending couple:
"True love is a commitment -- a decision to love each other not just when life is going well, but also when hard times come (as they will). It is a commitment to put the needs of our spouse first, and not just ourselves. The Bible says true love 'is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs' (1 Corinthians 13:5)."
As a follow-up to his advice, if you're contemplating a walk down the aisle, I heartily recommend a great book aptly named Preparing for Marriage.
