Imagine there is a couple who's love is getting more solid and strong as time passes. They have lived e.g 20 years and in spite of other's expectation they fall in love more and more. I was wondering if someone could let me know if in English the way I am trying to say the sentence below sounds natural:

  • Their love will get deeper (meaning gets stronger) as time passes.
  • 2
    Sure. You can fall more deeply in love. – Mick Dec 11 '16 at 15:47

Your example using

will get deeper

only talks about the future of their love without accounting for the past, which your question frames as a deepening process also.

A couple of ways to say this

They became more deeply in love as time passed.
Their love grew deeper as time passed.

often love is described as growing over time (as opposed to getting), both these sentences refer to past and future sates of their love.

"Deeper" also has the meaning of "stronger" in learning.

deeper understanding = stronger understanding (and includes more detailed understanding)
