However,

This is a great post over at Bluecollar.

It perfectly sheds light on the previous post, that love requires complete trust in and reliance upon Christ. There IS the power to do this, but it requires letting go of our own power and desires. To stop "feeding" the feelings by dwelling on them.

Sin isn't going to go away any time soon (should Christ tarry) so every day includes many mini-battles involving love of self versus love of God (and others, which is how it is shown much of the time).

Oh, how I wish I had learned this earlier.

Marcian,
I praise God that you're learning all of this before you get married. How very gracious of God to give you a teachable heart open to HIS wisdom before you marry.
No doubt He's sanctifying you for something wonderful for His glory.
