Based on the question above, what’s your answer?
I took a long time to think about it, and what’s my answer? You will know soon.
I have seen or heard of many real life stories about relationships. Some did melt my heart, some made me think very hard.
Why do people get into a relationship?
Is it because they love each other?
Or they get into relationships because they do not want to be single?
Maybe it is a must for us to find a life partner and have our own family?
Someone told me that, in a relationship, love is not the issue. When I heard that, I was like… what? Didn’t people get into relationship because they love each other? I was dumbfounded and I thought deeply about what she said. After all, she was not completely wrong. You see, some people get into a relationship then they finally get married, believing that they will live happily ever after. Later on, they have kids and family of their own and so on. But unfortunately, something happened between them. It is sad to say that the feeling of love that they had has vanished. However, they are still living together under one roof, sleeping on the same bed (maybe separate ones), living their own lifestyles, doing whatever they want without caring their another half and only communicate when it comes to the issues of their children. Some of them choose divorce as a solution to this problem. In this case, it has shown that love is not the issue anymore in a relationship but responsibilities.
On the other hand, for the people who are in relationships, of course, they do hope to be together forever. But what if breakups happen? Actually what really cause breakups to happen between couples no matter how long both of them have been together? Is it because they don’t love each other anymore? Or the girl could not stand the bad habits of the guy? Or one of them said they are not meant to be together? Maybe the guy has fallen in love with another girl. There are so many answers to this. Everyone has their own answer. But the question I was thinking is, why love couldn’t remain the same throughout the relationship, hold both of them together tightly and prevent any party to get hurt? I am confused. Love is complicated.
Whatever it is, it is love that brings the two persons together. And I bet everyone that is in love will have great and memorable moments with their loved ones, and will endure every moment no matter it is difficult or easy together.
Actually, it is your choice whether to make love exist between both of you until the end. You yourself have to make effort in it. I believe love is strong and it will conquer all.
Nevertheless, I know that there is love which is everlasting. It is the love from our Father in heaven. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16.
So, does love really matter?
My answer is, yes, it does really matter to me.
