Though the benefits of long-term commitment to each other are great, the price we pay for this high value we place on our loved ones is not small, by any stretch of the imagination. When we lose a cherished loved one, the feelings of loss can be overwhelming. These feelings, though they may soften over time, still reside in our private souls. A warm and sad spirit. An undercurrent of melancholy that we carry with us as long as we live.
