    All seem fine. Here's a quick overview of differences: The first is a general statement with no personal reference. The second personalizes the observation. The third makes it clear there are two or more people involved in the conclusion by pluralizing "life"

    1 and 3 are correct. 2 is not because the tenses don't match. 'Our' is plural, so the verb must be plural, 'lives'. It's not nuance, it's grammar.
