Love means never having to say you're sorry! Does it?

The line 'Love means never having to say you're sorry' comes from the 1970 weepy film 'Love Story' What exactly do you think that the words mean? I think that is is saying that love is unconditional, that it makes you understand and forgive someone you love, it doesn't judge, it doesn't manipulate - it turns forgiveness into compassion. Tha you don't need to say you're sorry to someone who you love and who loves you because you understand them and you. But if you love someone and you have hurt them I am sure that you would really want to say'Sorry' What are your opinions on this?

I am with you .Unless you apologise genuinely there is no real love.We cannot take refuge in this saying that love is unconditional and it does not need recognition of a good deed, a feeling of gratitude or a genuine regret. This would only lead to people taking each other for granted and it would get strained some time or other.

I haven't seen the movie. How amazing. You have a very sharp memory. My thoughts about the line is, sorry should not be a big deal. If someone you love have committed mistakes, you do not expect for them to say sorry because if you really love them, you have already forgiven them with all your heart and when they ought to say sorry, that would become a justification that you are right you have not waited for that time your love said sorry to you. Sometimes sorry is being abused. There are times that if someone had made mistakes and then said sorry, made mistakes again, then said sorry, it would be frustrating to know that his or her sorry doesn't make it anymore. You are used to it. Loving someone does not mean you always have to say sorry when you make mistakes. It does not mean that if that someone did not say sorry,she or he does not love you.
