    What does the mold for love look like? When we think of our ideas about love, where do they come from? Who were your relationship rolemodels?

    My parents. Both were terminally ill yet still built together. One survived ...the other did not. I learned alot about taking another for granted and not doing that. Having empathy for another and learning to grow together. Knowing what is truly important in life.

    I could say more but I'd like to see more from others.

    Without any doubt the mold of love was passed down by my parents
    from the teaching of respect and honoring as well loyality but often
    each person mold there own way of love for what they feel is important
    and being able to bond together as life long mates .

    But most part love has no teacher , we basicly learn it as we grow ...

    PEOPLE ON HERE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES.

    THIS IS THE TOPIC WITH THE LEAST RESPONSES. OH HOW WE LOVE DRAMA. WE'RE NOT INTERESTED IN SOLVING OUR PROBLEMS, JUST BITCHING ABOUT THEM. IF THIS WAS A POST ABOUT BEYONCE'S WEAVE THERE WOULD BE THOUSANDS OF RESPONSES. BUT A POST THAT CHALLENGES US TO OFFER SOME SOLUTIONS AND GENERATE POSITIVITY....NO ONE CAN ANSWER.

    I didn't see this thread, but agree it is an important one. My rolemodel for relationships came from my parents. It was from them I learned both the beauty and importance of black love. Their marriage made me want to seek the same, and I've been blessed to find the same.

    Could it be that most don't value the morals of love and how
    they come to grip of it why no one can speak to it.!

    Or, they may simply have no good role models for relationships to talk about.
    I think a lot of folk would be hard pressed to come up with one couple who they would truly model their very own relationship after. Even if your parents never divorced, their relationship may not be the relationship that you
    personally would want. I personally would say my parents, but also Ruby Dee & Ossie Davis because they were married for such a long time - working side by side for civil rights and in the cinema - weathering societal and personal storms.

    Though I think there IS a generic standard, I also believe, that it's in the eye of the beholder
