How do men act when they are in love with a woman?

I know that I'm asking people to make sweeping generalization, so if you feel more comfortable answering this question as the following, it's ok: what has a man being in love with a woman looked like from examples that you know of? don't know if it makes a difference, but as I'm looking for insights into my life, I'm referring to heterosexual man in love with heterosexual woman.
I was raised in South Asian culture where a lot of marriages (especially in the generation before mine) were arranged, and although I've certainly seen men in love with women, and experienced men in love with me, I have trouble understanding it. I have a man who seems in love with me now (fiance) and I feel like your input will help me value and understand his love better. What does love look like after a couple years? After a decade? What does it feel like? Is it always 'he will do anything in the whole world for her and move mountains' or can it be more selfish? Is it really a chemical thing inside the brain that has an expiration date of two years after start, as some say?
I'm not sure how to flush out this question fully so please feel free to ask me for clarification.
