Love as a Love Song


We ran a fun poll the last few weeks about love. We asked our readers what love song best described their marriage? Here were the choices:

  1. ‘€œTruly, Madly, Deeply’€ (Savage Garden, 1997)
  2. ‘€œLove Will Keep Us Together’€ (Captain and Tennille, (1975)
  3. ‘€œI Want It That Way’€ (Backstreet Boys, 1999)
  4. ‘€œRush, Rush’€ (Paula Abdul, 1991)
  5. ‘€œI Can’€™t Get No Satisfaction’€ (Rolling Stones, 1965)

We’€™re happy to report that our readers by and large seem to be happy in their marriages with only 10% stating that they can’€™t get no satisfaction and 3% saying it was all a Rush, Rush (I’€™m taking the rush, rush thing to be a negative’€”not a positive).

A truly, madly and deeply in love 33% is pretty high when you consider that roughly 50% of marriages end in divorce these days, and then a whopping 40% say that love will keep them together.

Let’€™s hope that the Captain and Tennille are right. I think it’€™s fair to say that SavvyMoms have a lot of love, are happily married and listen to some pretty cheesy music!

Have a wonderful Valentine’€™s Day with your beloved and the rest of your friends and family.

Rock on, young lovers.
