As the late, great Barry White once sang in his smooth, silky baritone voice- Love Ain’t Easy.

Of course in the beginning it’s all butterflies and swooning, but after the initial intrigue it truly takes a special bond to become a squad, to cultivate your love to survive the rough times as well as the very best, and to come out smiling on the other side.

We lately asked Bored Panda pairs to send in their before-and-after pics, and now we have compiled a list of the cutest photos. You can just seem the adoration coming right out from the images! It’s pretty obvious that these luck couples share a lifelong bond that simply a lucky few will experience. Scroll down to check them out below, and feel free to share your own tales in the comments!
