I once heard someone say, " No Money, No Honey ". Love can starts a relationship most merely for a fact...but to sustain it? You gotta need lots of stuff and some factors to considered it.One also say, We are not living in a cookie-cutter anyway. In your own view, can love alone sustains a relationship?

It really depends on how you define love. All of us I guess have different views about love, since all of us have different experiences and influences. For me, yes love can sustain a relationship. Because in love alone, you'll have the willingness to accept each others short comings. We have the willingness also to fill in ones flaws. Plus! The relationship alone won't work out without the love in either of the two parties...

Falling in love is the most wonderful feelings in the world.Being in love can often sustain a relationship in it's early stages, even in the face of other differences between you and your partner,personal difficulties, and even what might otherwise be significant relationship obstacles. But love alone is seldom enough to sustain a successful relationship. Because even love manages to stay strong, relationship face challenges that love alone won't be sufficient to meet.

Like what I said, it really depends on how you define love... On how I read your point, you were saying about attraction, not love... Love is not a noun but an action... Attraction don't last, but if you learn to love that person you'll have the persistence to make that relationship last... Like in family for example... My parents love me so they have to look for a job in order to feed and send me to good school.. Or my boyfriend, we got attracted at first, yes... But as time goes by we see each others true colors, like I am short tempered, I don't know how to cook good food, I'm tactless, I don't have a job, etc. and yet he embraces my imperfections and tried his best to fill in my flaws. Because he loves me.. But if you start to find faults, be proud, or boastful... Then there is no love... Then the relationship will not last...

no, but love is one foundation to have a good relationship. other things you need to sustain a relationship is communication, you need to have the same values in life, you to share your dreams together and support each other. lift each other to nourish and grow with each other.

I agree too.Love cannot sustain a relationship alone if you are financially unstable.Maybe at first it ok,but sometimes relationship and love is test when the times of hard life.Money and feelings are one of the important ingredients also to sustain the relationship.

Hi there Elle! I don't think that love alone can sustain a relationship. I believe that it is a start of a possibly life-long relationship but to make that possible, there should be commitment. Both parties should be willing to make the relationship work out, make sacrifices whenever needed and grow together so that the relationship will be strong enough to withstand every oncoming storm.
