Was it ever a time that after so many years of relationship or marriage, you fall out of love? If yes, what is the reason behind that?

Yes, a person can fall out of love no matter how long a relationship was. I would say too much pain and heartache is the primary cause. A person can love another very much, but only to a certain extent. That's when the person realizes that he or she loves himself/herself more. If the love has been taken for granted, used and abused, it could wear out. It could come to that point where the person who loved too much would already hate and refuse to remember that part of his/her life that he/she had loved another who didn't deserve it afterall.

Thanks for the response. I agree on your answer. Some people says, as days passed, your love for the person is increasing. There are also instances, depending on the situation, there's this kind of person that is very much abusive. If you show your love, he is taking you for granted. If you don't show, he will tell everybody that your are cheating on him. From the first time that you get to know each other well until now that you've been together for almost 11 years, It's really painful.

Yes, I did fall out of love when I was in a relationship. The reason behind it because there was a third party involved. He did it for the second time and I was pretty tired of that. All that sleepless nights and crying myself to sleep. Then there was a time when he met this girl through chat. They didn't become an item but, I felt betrayed by his trust. Eventhough they weren't an item, I still felt hurt by what he did. So, right now Im happily single and at peace with myself.

Hi, When the loved one hurts it do not hurt until the other side love is sill strong. But if loved one cheats it really hurts the other side. Still I hope to fall out of love is according to the value one give to love and love and trust he gets back. Still fall out love occurs here and there after long lasted relations. When ether get distrubed with a inside hurt or may be lack of getting true love.

I don't think it's possible to "fall out of love", I personally have never "fallen out of love" with anyone. I honestly think that love just evolves and changes constantly, and what someone might consider "falling out of love", I would consider a different type of love or a shift in emotion for that person. Love is a constant, once it is given or taken it is never revoked totally.

Maybe some people said they fall out of love. It is because they don't really love their partner or they really didn't feel the true love. If they really love the person, falling out of love is never to happen to both of them.
