I believe many people get married for the wrong reason..LOVE! I bet many of you are thinking.."what is this fool talking about?" I don't believe Love is anywhere close to enough for marriage, especially since most of us have no idea what love is. When presented with the question of what love is-- we all have varying answers; and because these answers are so different, often we get into marriages with people who have a completely different defintion of love. I mean...How many of us ask our partners what their definition of love is? It never crossed my mind until we started arguing about her selfishness. Her definition of love consisted of companionship, compliance, and lust...not her exact words but close. My definition of love was friendship, sacrifice, forgiveness, and affection (which sometimes includes lust). If we take away the affection and lust(cause they cancel themselves out) and take away companionship, compliance, and forgiveness (cause you can get that from a pet) take away sacrifice cause we can get that from our parents. We are left with friendship. I believe that friendship(which includes great communication) is more important than love in and of itself. So the questions are...What are your definitions of love? and...Would you date or marry someone who had a different definiton of love?
