IT’S a question that is often asked with a dry mouth and a fast-beating heart. One of the couple takes the other’s hand, looks into their eyes and asks: ‘Do you love me?’
The rest of their lives could depend on the answer that is given. If the response is no, then hopes are likely to be dashed and a relationship could end; but a yes opens up a world of happy possibilities.
Love may make the world go round, but it also comes with high expectations of commitment.
