Love.

What is love?

Is it merely a feeling?

If it is, feelings wax and wane so how do you know that love will stay?

How do you know you will always love the person you are with?

If you answered because they love me, what if they stop? What if for one day they don’t feel like loving you? Do you throw it all away and start again? Or do you choose to love them, despite their feelings?

Is love a choice? A decision to keep the vows “for better or for worse”?

Unconditional love is the purest form of love. It is a commitment. It is a choice to continue to love when the other person is not so loveable. It doesn’t demand anything. It is willing to wait until the loving feelings return and if we are patient they almost always do.

So, I believe love is a feeling, but it is also a choice.
