love is not a noun but an action word. it is not to be said only but it should be done. sometimes couples fall out of love because there lives become more of a routine and they lost creativity on how to make life as a couple worthwhile. this is called the LABOR OF LOVE. you make an effort to make things that would transcend mere routine at home activities such as going out shopping, camping, travel etc. would you still cuddle your partner as you did in early years? do you still say i love you as years go by or you forgot this ordinary things? labor of love then is not easy.

Hi wallygator, I can't say it is a labour of love, it is our feelings and intimacy also urge towards our partner. I don't know some how i can't compare love with anything. Love is just love which don't have any comparison with anything. I didn't understand why people will take it as the labour or responsibility. It is within the heart self less a god related one. Now a days i see couple will not have real love, they show love for many reasons may be because of the money they share or because of the children they have. My question is why out word show all such things, why can't they have it really? All become now a days as mechanism, time being. And you know for love also they are fixing the time. This is real painful one. Have a nice day.

thanx jotomy for sharing, yeah love is within our hearts it's the most precious thing God has put into our hearts. but love is not to be kept within it has to be expressed also in our actions. i agree with you that couples nowadays sometimes love for the sake of security, wealth, etc. which is very conditional and that is very painful indeed.. God bless you jotomy...

I'm single. I have never had this experience. But I hope that I can do better in the future when I'll get married.

You can use 'love' as a noun. I think that is a nice name to give someone. Alot of people take their loved ones for granted and it is sad. The labor of love is sort of a bad phrase because it shouldn't be a 'labor'. Loving should be the most fulfilling thing we do in our lives.

I have not found love as intense that I want to spend my whole life with a guy. Thinking a supposition, I would still cuddle say I love you after years of being together. Just cross my fingers on it.

I agree w/ you, there's such a thing as labor of love. Sometimes we become preoccupied w/ our daily routine that we tend to take sweetness and attention to our partners for granted. But find time to cope up w/ one another. Communication is important in love. So find even a little time to talk to your partner and express your love to him/her.
