Couple, many pairs, nowadays live together without love. Do you think this relationship is fine forever, I don't think because love is the strong bond between any two people, either friends or couple. However, there are many reasons for the couple to live together without love. One could be finance issue as one has to depend upon another. Another could be status because the particular society would not allow them to separate as it is considered a shame. I mean they have to live for others. Another important reasons children. Even though they are not attached with each other , simply they have to live together for the sake of children's life. Regularly, man compromise themselves for the sake of their beloved children because in many countries mother would carry the children with her while they separate leaving the man in desperate condition. Why this injustice being done to males ? WOULD IT BE FINE TO LIVE WITHOUT LOVE FOR YEARS FOR SOME REASONS??

I think that it would be fine for them to do so as long as both of them were happy with the set up, but I don't understand why you would want to live with somebody who you didn't love. I know that there is no way that I would be able to do this because I would want to live with people who I got on with well, as I would need my own space if this wasn't the case. Living with somebody is a serious deal, and you should always make sure that you are doing the right thing before you choose to do so.

I don't know any relationship that last long without love. Even in friendship, love is a must to understand each other. Without love, how can we understand each others differences and shortcomings? Only love has the the capacity to endure pain and hardships in any relationship. Just my opinion.

I think for children's sake, couple had better not divorce. I know some couples divorced and it hurt their children so much, it's bad for the children's growing up. Sometimes couples divorced, though mother would carry the children, father couldn't do that, still, I think divorce is not fair for mothers. As time passed by, love between couple are waded, women became old, not beautiful any more. Men just don't love the old woman any more, they love the young ones instead. But their wives were young when they loved them, everyone will become old. So it is not fair. Of course , there are many many reasons for the couples divorce, not all the divorce has the reason I said. I hope man think carefully before they make a decision to divorce.

I am not sure why would two people decide to be together if not for love in the first place. Are you talking about married couples of those who are just living in together? If about married couples... I believe marriage is a sacred vow between a man and a woman with a Higher Being as a witness. So, it shouldn't be annulled. Besides, it's a choice, firstly, before it becomes a pact. Meaning, both parties agreed to be tied to each other. Why the sudden change in feeling? Also, I do believe that love is a choice. You can't just wake up one morning and tell yourself, "am not anymore in love with this person". You may have seen some thing you don't like about a person, but it shouldn't be a reason for not loving the person anymore. That's where commitment comes in. Love is not a feeling. People just make excuses for not being committed to a decision they made because they suddenly have a change of heart. And, marriage is not a mood. You feel good now and then later you're irritated. Love is not like that. If it's like that then there won't be many people sticking with each other because there are options. Just my two cents.
