Love Me or Love Me, Not...

Do you think people can stay in love forever or do we all fall out of love???
I have been thinking a lot about this lately.
I see so many people falling out of love...

What do you think? When people get married, is it possible to stay in love forever or are we all bound to fall out of love?

Hi Maki,
Well it looks like I've got a lot to catch up on. I was reading several of your last posts in my feeds and thought, man! I just have to say something regarding the sex, infidelity, makeup and love, all of them very provocative issues.

Love can be a weird thing, and I believe that a couple is able to love forever -- if they work at it. People change as they grow, so if current activities, future goals, etc are not on the same wavelength, inevitably that love will be lost in the process of years going by. Love is so NOT like some favorite stuffed animal that you can keep in the attic as a keepsake. Unfortunately, I don't believe many people are realistic about the whole concept of love.

As for sex and infidelity, all I can say is that if a couple with an "open" marriage cannot even live honorably between themselves, then how do they expect their children to understand the moral issues of truth and falsehoods? As much as your friend believes that children should be raised in a family with both parents, by condoning his wife's actions, he is only setting himself up as a person without a spine who can be walked all over. Even if his children don't know what's going on now, imagine later when they become teenagers and realize that mommy just simply doesn't love daddy in that way anymore. A ridiculous example to give to kids when they reach the stage of wanting to be in their own relationships.

And makeup...geez, is it that maybe the stuff that you're buying is top-of-the-line expensive designer cosmetics? Maybe hubby is secretly pissed about the $$$, but I don't see how a little makeup could possibly make him say such a thing to you. I'm puzzled by any man who would even think to bring up the discussion. It's not like it's HIS face that's being primped! ;-)

Hi Rowena, Yes, many of my topics do include provocative issues. I hope I'm not offending anyone.

I do agree with you about "love". I think a lot of people including myself do not realize how complicated love can be. It's very tricky and not as simple as many would hope or want that to be..

Sex is also very complicated - my friend's case is really rare I believe. I don't know how he does it. He has his own agenda on this and I'm just speechless when it comes to his relationship with his wife.

And makeup - yes many stuff I use are designer cosmetics, but I don't think that is it. I don't know what's his problems, but I now realize that he does it everytime we're running late or in a hurry. Do you think that could be the reason for the fuss?
