I love my wife deeply, madly and so thoroughly it sometimes makes me hurt. My love for her permeates the very core of who I am, and I cannot imagine existence without her. Hugging her is often the very best part of my day. I say all these things not to brag or self promote, but rather to point out that this is my way of life. Loving my wife is part of the fabric of who I am. I do not need a day to remind me, prod me, or goat me into saying or thinking that I love her. That would be false, momentary and fleeting, what I have is eternal. The truth is I will will love her no more tomorrow then any other day, which is to say, immensely.

You have no idea how lucky you are to have such a love.  I guess the point of Valentine's Day (besides to make money for card, candy, jewelry companies and restaurants) is to take a day to remind you to show the one's you love how much you love them.  Your wife is just lucky enough to have someone who doesn't need a reminder.

This is exactly how my wife and I feel about each other. We've never celebrated Valentine's Day, instead letting every day be the day we remind each other of how much we love each other.

We consider ourselves very lucky and I'm sure you and your wife feel the same way too.

Thanks Loca,
I agree that if you are dating or at the early stages of a committed relationship, Valentines Day can serve a purpose. But I think if you are in a true loving relationship, like Dynamaso said... you let every day be the reminder...well put.
