Mature Love

by Jason Stotts

I saw this series of illustrations earlier and I think it makes a very powerful point: mature love isn’t desperate, mature love is creating a life together through little moments and many choices.

While in our culture we are very entrenched in the paradigm of desperate longing (a la Romeo and Juliet), this is what immature or new love looks like. However, if we come to believe that all love looks like this, we may miss out or deprecate mature love for its constancy and commitment. But mature love is creating a life together and this isn’t, or shouldn’t, involve the desperateness of a new love that is still trying to forge itself.
