As the late, great Barry White once sang in his smooth, silky baritone voice – Love Ain’t Easy.

Of course in the beginning it’s all butterflies and swooning, but after the initial romance it truly takes a special bond to become a team, to cultivate your love to survive the rough times as well as the good, and to come out smiling on the other side.

We recently asked Bored Panda couples to send in their before-and-after pics, and now we have compiled a list of the cutest photos.  You can just feel the love coming right out from the images! It’s pretty obvious that these lucky couples share a lifelong bond that only a lucky few will experience. Scroll down to check them out below, and feel free to share your own stories in the comments!

I work in a kindergarten class, as a Special Care Counsellor. I've noticed, lately, that some kids seem to develop crushes between them. I thought this was just innocent "kids play". After seeing this, I'll never think of it the same way. Actually, I hope that in a few years, I'll get to hear about them getting married and starting a family together. Heck! Should I live long enough, I might even get to take care of their own kids! #mindblown

A little over a month ago, we learned that my husband had colon cancer. One of the first things he told me after getting the diagnosis was "If this thing kills me, I want to die in your arms". What I didn't tell him then was that if he dies, I'll be the next one to go. Just like this beautiful couple. I know it in my heart and soul. Thankfully, his surgery was a total success, and he's stitting next to me, watching a movie and bitching about the plot and leading actor. Houston, we don't have a problem anymore, but should we do again, I have a pretty good idea about how it's gonna play out...
