Especially when trying to downplay the importance of being physically attracted to your partner?.

Yes. It's not just a phenomenon. It's a simple fact. Nobody looks good forever. Nobody. No matter how much you might want your partner to look good, they will eventually get older. Their skin will get looser, and maybe wrinklier, over time. Sight goes. Hearing fails. Age just happens.
Do you honestly think you'll be this perfect specimen of the human body forever? Do you really think you'll be desired for your looks alone, for the rest of your life? Do you really think you or your partner will not go through the same thing? If so, I hope you plan on dying young, and quick.
Yeah I know that it sounds grim. I know it sounds depressing, but it doesn't have to be. It's just a fact to face. People age. Looks fade. It happens. Might as well enjoy somebody for who they are, and not how they look. Heck, even if you were the type of person to give/get surgery to "fix" all the things that have changed over the years, that personality will still be there. You can't "fix" that.
So in conclusion, yes, I do believe it. I believe it to be a fact.
