Next Avenue readers share what love looks like:

Unexpected love, unplanned separation and the caring bonds created by family are just some themes of the love stories shared recently by Next Avenue readers. We received many lovely contributions, more than we are able to spotlight, so thank you to all for your participation.

Our readers have discovered that love can be beautiful, difficult, sweet and often surprising. As Loretta Martin writes of her happy, late-in-life union, “We still catch each other’s eye… our smiles asking, ‘How did this happen?’”

From a life-long romance, to the loving devotion of a four-legged friend, to the special love between sisters — read more about the "love stories" readers like you shared with Next Avenue.
