(The Root) -- Black love and marriage come in many different forms; the desire for a healthy, successful union is universal. This Valentine's Day, three married couples from all walks of life talk to The Root and put love into perspective, share the special quirks of their relationships and reveal how they keep pressing on the path to forever. While what works for some couples may not work for all, the importance of nurturing and maintaining the bonding agent in a marriage remains the same.
