If you're happily in love, tell us about what triggered that feeling in you. Was it love at first sight, or did it require a written list of pros and cons? Did it strike you in the middle of the night? Did that feeling develop after you'd weathered a few storms together? Or were you only sure once you'd received counsel from friends and family?
