"She makes me happy"

My friend and I were discussing her nephew the other day. Curious, I went to check the boy's FB profile. Came across a photo of him with his girlfriend. Caption: "She makes me happy."

In four words, this 18-year-old boy summarized what's important when you're with someone. You can be with someone you love, but if you or the other person's not happy, when the bad days outweigh the good, then something's wrong. It comes down to what's important - love and happiness. If you love the person and the person loves you back, if being together makes the two of you sublimely happy, then that's all that matters.
