Courtship, Dating, Marriage

So I stumbled across a website with numerous Engagement/Marriage stories and one of the girls in one of the stories I read said this about what it meant for her as a Christian to be in-love, I thought it was a wonderful edifying thought/definition:

"Being in love is when I trust him completely to handle my very life, my very existence and my whole future until I die. When I can put my self, my life, and my future under his authority, and under his leading. When I know that I'm going to spend the rest of my life with him. When I entrust myself to him completely, knowing that he listens to God. That I can submit to him, because he submits to God, and it's like I submit to God through him. To me that's being in love, and I don't feel that way about him yet. The courtship will give him the opportunity to prove himself to me."

That is just such a wonderful definition one that I would like to live up to for the future husband God has in store for me.
