89 Songs About Marriage and Long Term Love Relationships

FlourishAnyway believes there is a playlist for just about any situation and is on a mission to unite and entertain the world through song.

For Love That Stands the Test Time

Whether you've been together a year, a decade, or a half-century, it's time to honor your commitment to one another.  Pay tribute to yourselves as a couple with a song list.

Whether you've been together a year, a decade, or a half-century, it's time to honor your commitment to one another. Pay tribute to yourselves as a couple with a song list.

When Love Lasts ... and Lasts ... and Lasts

Negative news always gets the most attention. With the divorce rate hovering at 50%, it's no wonder that there are so many songs about relationship break-ups and cheating.

But what about the other half? Shouldn't we celebrate those committed couples who somehow manage to make their love stand the test of time?

Having been married for over 20 years, my husband occasionally reminds me that we've been together for more than half our lives. We've stuck it out through

  • job changes and relocations
  • health crises
  • the loss of both of his parents, and
  • personal setbacks as well as triumphs.

And together we've gained perspective, some grey hair, a few unwanted pounds, a daughter, a home of our own, and more than a couple of cats (six of them, currently).

Although we'd both acknowledge that some years have been more jubilant than others, we're still crazy for one another. There's no one who has ever made me laugh quite like he can.

No matter how long you've been together with your partner, celebrate your relationship success with a song list that pays tribute to long-term couples and staying together. Here's to a love that stands the test of time!

1. "Still the One" by Orleans

This classic 1976 song describes the reality of long-term love. It's not always a bed of roses, but there's nothing more beautiful than the comfort of knowing there's someone you can always turn to.

We've been together since way back when
Sometimes I never want to see you again
But I want you to know, after all these years
You're still the one I want whisperin' in my ear.

2. "When A Man Loves A Woman" by Michael Bolton

They say that love is blind, but Michael Bolton knows that it can be blissfully deaf and dumb, too. When you've committed yourself to a partner, there's nothing that can stand in the way of making him or her happy — not facts and reason, a best friend's warnings, or pride. It's the two of you against the world. Michael Bolton's 1991 version of this song won him a Grammy.

Grow Old With Me, the Best Is Yet fo Be

Marriage tends to confer health, economic, psychological, and longevity benefits, although generally more for men than women.

3. "Have I Told You Lately" by Rod Stewart

If you've ever been in a sad, desolate place and been comforted by the healing heart of your spouse or long-term partner, the refrain in Rod Stewart's 1993 song will surely resonate. It emphasizes the important role of helpmate, providing a lover with years of emotional support.

Take away all my sadness, fill my life with gladness
Ease my troubles, that's what you do.

4. "Stuck Like Glue" by Sugarland

This 2010 country song pays tribute to the one who keeps reeling your heart back in, year after year. No matter what others say, no matter if love occasionally goes a little stale, there's no one who makes your heart thump like your partner does.

5. "This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)" by Natalie Cole

In 1975, this was Natalie Cole's debut single about a lover dreaming hopefully about a long future with her sweetheart. After waiting for the thrill of a lifetime, she's found her true love and now looks forward to a lifetime of bliss with him.

"There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage." - Martin Luther, German theologian

6. "Everlasting Love" by Carl Carlton

This energetic, uplifting disco-era favorite (1974) by Carl Carlton heralds lifelong love—a romance that flourishes even as others' love affairs may flounder:

Where life's river flows, no one really knows
'til someone's there to show the way to lasting love.
Like the sun that shines, endlessly it shine,
You always will be mine. It's everlasting love.
When other loves are gone, ours will still be strong,
We have our very own everlasting love.

7. "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me ) Higher and Higher" by Jackie Wilson

There's no need for drugs because love creates its special kind of euphoria. This 1967 hit proclaims that love has lifted him out of despair and disappointment, and if his lady keeps doing this, then it'll be a forever match. (Sounds like a lot of work to cheer this guy up forever, but hey ... .)

"Love in marriage should be the accomplishment of a beautiful dream, and not, as it too often is, the end." - Alphonse Karr, Frech  critic

"Love in marriage should be the accomplishment of a beautiful dream, and not, as it too often is, the end." - Alphonse Karr, Frech critic

8. "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton

This 1977 ballad describes an evening out between a man and woman who have been together long-term. At the party they attend, he watches as others eye his beautiful partner, and he is mesmerizes by her beauty, charm, and empathy as they return home late at night.

9. "Where've You Been?" by Kathy Mattea

Country artist Kathy Mattea captures the changing nature of lifelong commitment between a man and woman in this touching 1989 song. Try not to get choked up as you listen to the story of both their early days together and their days on separate floors in a nursing home with the wife suffering from memory problems:

Where have you been?
I've looked for you for ever and a day
Where have you been?
I'm just not myself when you're away.

A lifetime partner knows your life story.

A lifetime partner knows your life story.

10. "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green

Now this is a love song! Al Green lets his honey know in this 1971 song that her love has made him a brand new man, and he's ready to see their relationship through 'til the end of time.

11. "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran

In this romantic 2014 ballad, Ed Sheeran ponders what it will be like to still be in love with his sweetheart decades from now. Their bodies will start to betray them yet they will still have one another to cling to.

Keep Love Egg-citing

You can't come between true love

You can't come between true love

12. "Never Say Never" by The Fray

When you're in it for the long haul, your relationship naturally experiences ebbs and flows, as is expressed in this 2009 song:

We're falling apart,
And we're coming together,
Again and again.

13. "You're Still the One" by Shania Twain

At the top of her fame in 1998, Shania Twain released this favorite about a couple that is instantly smitten. They turn their passion into a lifelong affair of the heart.

Unfortunately, it didn't work out that way for her and famed record producer Mutt Lange. Following a brief romance with him in 1993, she married him but the couple divorced in 2008 after he had an affair with her best friend. In an interesting twist, Shania went on to marry her best friend's husband, a Nestlé executive. Sweet revenge, eh?

14. "Time After Time" by Cyndi Lauper

In this 1984 pop classic, Cyndi Lauper promises to always be there for her lover:

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I will be waiting
Time after time.

15. "Power of Two" by Indigo Girls

Multiplying life by the power of two means baring your soul to another and loving one them through both the good times and the difficult. This 2000 rock song celebrates life partnerships in a mellow, understated way.

16. "How Long Will I Love You" by Ellie Goulding

In this 2013 ballad, Ellie Goulding asks and answers the question, "How long will I love you?" She exudes both the hope of youth and the commitment of a seasoned adult who understands just how long forever is.

"When marrying, ask yourself this question: Do you believe that you will be able to converse well with this person into your old age? Everything else in marriage is transitory." - Friedrich Nietzsche, German philosopher

"When marrying, ask yourself this question: Do you believe that you will be able to converse well with this person into your old age? Everything else in marriage is transitory." - Friedrich Nietzsche, German philosopher

17. "Mine" by Taylor Swift

For all the break-up songs that Taylor Swift writes, this isn't one of them. In this 2010 electronic/dance hit, she portrays the ups and downs of a committed romance as a couple develops their own personal narrative of love and the feeling that they are taking on the world together.

18. "Because You Loved Me" by Celine Dion

In this 1996 pop ballad, the powerful voice of Celine Dion honors long-term commitment and all the strength that comes with love over the years. These include having a partner to stand by you, even though the most challenging times, making dreams come true together, and realizing each other's full potential.

19. "The Story" by Brandi Carlisle

If you believe that you and your partner were made for one another, then this 2007 song for you. Brandi Carlisle pays tribute to her sweetheart's ability to know her as no one else does:

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true: I was made for you.

"To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides." - David Viscott, American psychiatrist

"To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides." - David Viscott, American psychiatrist

20. "Lovesong" by The Cure

A lifelong lover fits like a comfortable pair of shoes—versatile, ever-welcoming, and reliably there. This 1989 song celebrates the sweet release of being alone with a significant other who makes you feel whole, accepted, and free.

21. "This Is the Good Stuff" by Kenny Chesney

After his first big fight with the woman in his life, a man in this 2002 country song wanders into a bar where he orders a drink. He receives some sage advice from an old timer who tells him the good stuff cannot be found in the bottom of a glass. Instead, it's sharing your life with someone special. Both love and life are made up of shared moments.

Love Through The Ages

"If you find someone you love in your life, then hang on to that love." - Princess Diana

"If you find someone you love in your life, then hang on to that love." - Princess Diana

22. "In This Life" by Collin Raye

This 1992 country song captures the awestruck feeling — even after years of being together — that one has been blessed with the love of a lifetime. If someone feels this way about you, count yourself lucky. If the feeling is mutual, then it's worth more than gold.

23. Wasn't Expecting That" by Jamie Lawson

This 2011 chart topper describes how one little glance can turn into a lifelong romance with the help of serendipity. Sometimes we just need to let love happen, a little at a time. I cry every time I hear it.

After hearing Jamie Lawson in concert as the opening act for Vance Joy, I became an instant fan.

24. "Do You Remember?" by Jack Johnson

In this folksy 2005 ballad, Jack Johnson prompts his lover of 10 years to recall their shared past, including how they met and became a couple.

25. "The Luckiest" by Ben Folds

The protagonist in this 2001 love song proclaims that he appreciates all the wrong turns and stumbles he has taken in life because they brought him to his sweetheart. He expresses his lifelong commitment by describing a married neighbor couple who died within days of one another. He considers himself lucky in love and in it for the long haul.

Questions & Answers

Question: How can I prove my love to my spouse?

Answer: I'm concerned about your question and the circumstances that underlie it. You shouldn't have to "prove" your love to your spouse. In a healthy marriage, people trust one another, openly and honestly share their feelings, problem solve collaboratively, and don't have to prove anything because there is unconditional acceptance. If your spouse is asking you to engage in something you are uncomfortable with in order to prove your love, then take this as a big red flag and honor your personal boundaries. You may want to consider going to marital therapy so you learn healthy patterns of interacting.

Julie - Thank you for the smart additions! Much appreciated! Have a great week!

Julie K Henderson on September 09, 2015:

What an inspiring hub. "How Long Will I Love You" is one of my current favorites, whereas it's hard to go wrong with "Let's Stay Together." If I could add any songs to this list, they would be "Love Will Keep Us Alive" by The Eagles and "When I'm 64" by The Beatles. Well done.

agusfanani from Indonesia on August 10, 2015:

Wow, what a thorough, very interesting list although I found some I'm not familiar with. My favorite are the one by Rod Steward and Erick Clapton. Thank you for sharing this wonderful list, I believe couples get more and more feelings to love each other when they listen to those songs.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on August 09, 2015:

savvy - Intercourse, PA is up in Amish country of all places. Depending on who I'm traveling with, I either make crass jokes or try to awkwardly ignore the obvious. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

Yves on August 08, 2015:

Oh, oh, oooo, ooooo, Baby, This I promise you. I just love those boy bands!! Next subject: Intercourse, Pennsylvania? How embarrassing. Imagine saying in response to the question of your birthplace. "Oh, I grew up in Intercourse." I'd probably say I was born in the next town over and avoid the "you're obviously a crazy person" look. Ha!

BTW, penguins are monogamous too. (Just thought I'd put my two cents in) However, you did say "mostly" (not fully) monogamous, so that's probably why you left the penguins out. :) Voting up.

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on August 05, 2015:

VioletteRose - Thank you for your lovely comment.

VioletteRose from Atlanta on August 05, 2015:

Genna - Thanks for your kind kudos. I really like that song, too. Have a terrific week! Thanks for reading and commenting.

Genna East from Massachusetts, USA on August 02, 2015:

I love this list! So many wonderful songs to choose from and to listen to. I was going to say that "When A Man Loves A Woman" is my favorite, until I read further...too many to choose from. Thank you for this music. :-)

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on August 02, 2015:

Love Eric Clapton and Shania Twain and Percy Sledge's version of 'When a Man loves a Woman'. Also James Taylor's 'You've got a friend'.

There are so many lovely songs and you're right, it's so good to celebrate those who've stayed together through thick and thin.

Thanks for a reminder of some great songs.

Sheila Brown from Southern Oklahoma on July 31, 2015:

This is an awesome playlist! You have reminded me of so many songs I love, yet haven't heard in a while! We should celebrate those who have stuck it out and stayed married instead of giving up. Hubby and I have been married for 29 years this year. Thank you for such wonderful memories this playlist has brought back! Up and awesome!

travmaj from australia on July 31, 2015:

Hi Flourish. What a great list. Some of my favorite songs are on the list. You are right when you say we always hear about the negative with divorces and breakups so it' great to celebrate something positive. Great job.

Bronwen Scott-Branagan from Victoria, Australia on July 28, 2015:

Love those place names! I wonder if the inhabitants are more likely to stay together. Last Sunday a small child asked me 'What's divorce?' How refreshing!

FlourishAnyway (author) from USA on July 27, 2015:

Faith Reaper - Thank you so much for reading and sharing. You are always such a sweet, loyal lady. There is so much out there giving attention to infidelity and heartache that I thought we should focus on the positive. Some mates are here to stay.

Faith Reaper from southern USA on July 27, 2015:

Wow, Flourish, I believe this list is my favorite list of yours so far! All of the songs are great and you have brought back a lot of memories.

Yes, what about the other half? You got it covered, girl!

Up ++++ and away

MsDora - Strange huh? And those worms are actually human intestinal parasites ... but monogamous. I guess there's someone for everyone. Thank you for the well wishes and kind words. Have a beautiful week.

Shyron - Picking the right one is an art form and often we do that at such a young age! I'm glad it works out for about half of the time. Thanks for stopping by and for sharing, suggesting. Have a wonderful week.

Monogamous termites? Wonder how did they find that out, but it's worth knowing. Also like the list of locations with love ideas. Another interesting list, Flourish and best to you and your husband going forward!

Shyron E Shenko from Texas on July 27, 2015:

Wow, I could listen to these songs all day. I am a hopeless romantic, and this brings back so many memories.

I have one song you could add, if you don't mind when you up-date this.

Your playlist hubs are getting better and better. I like how you interspersed facts and inspirational messages into the list. Great photos anyone. I played "Your Still the One" as I read. Thanks.

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on July 27, 2015:

This is such an uplifting way to start the week, Flourish. The songs are so beautiful. Another good one is "My Endless Love" by Lionel Richie. And let's not forget about Bryan Adams' "Heaven". I'm sure we could go on and on.

I love these playlists, especially the happy ones.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on July 27, 2015:
