Love, Or No Love?

"After marriage, love is the first thing that goes out of the window."

How true is this statement?

Does love really 'go out of the window' after time?

Does familiarity really cause people to fall out of love with each other?

If you've loved someone once, then do you ever really stop loving him/her?

... even if you've been married to each other for decades?

... even if he never remembers your birthday and she always nags you for leaving the towel on the bed?

... even if you both hate your mothers-in-law?

... even if you are separated?

... even if you never married each other?

... even if the other person never returned your love?

You may stop expressing your love to him/her... you may even stop talking to or seeing him/her... but if you once loved someone, do you ever really stop loving him/her?

An SMS forward started me on this chain of thought, and I couldn't help wondering about it. Perhaps my readers would like to share their views on this...

I dont know as I would hate to get carried away by silly phrases.
It is upto two individuals to make a marriage work.
It has to be the right mix of Trust, caring,love,sex,disagreements,agreements...that is,whatever comes in daily life.
Nothing gets thrown out the window----Keep the curtains drawn,a lot can happen.
Enjoy every moment of life.

Mr. Chowla, thank you so much for sharing your views! "Keep the curtains drawn"... good advice indeed! :D :p

Hmmmm.... a lot actually depends on the circumstances... there could be Love even if one has not met/spoken for ages and there could be No Love even if one is staying under the same roof.

True... most of the "arranged marriages" in our country are perfect examples of the latter! But, what if there was love once? Genuine love? Does it ever really 'go out of the window', as people usually say? Are fights, disagreements, hurts, and unkindness sufficient to completely erase the love that once was?

I don't know if it is possible to stop loving someone you have loved once. But love can and does cool off with the accumulation of hurt, disagreements and unkindness ... I feel so. Otherwise how do you account for so many divorces / separation? (I agree though that love-less-ness is not the only reason for divorce)

Ahh... like a fire that's gone out! Brilliantly put, Mita! And thank you sooooo much for leaving your footprints here! :D :P
