Your heart is pounding. Your palms are sweating. You can’t think of anything but your beloved. Is this true love or infatuation? Author and pastor Gary Thomas reminds us that while infatuation and romance are fun, they also work as a mild sedative on wisdom, and aren’t the best foundation for a happy, life-long marriage.
