I have always thought love,am talking of the romantic type,is overrated!!! Is it possible to fall in love with several people in your lifetime,or is it just an obsession with the idea of being in love. Nowadays most couples are in a relationship or marriage just to fit in to societal expectations.sometimes just for convenience, what's your take?

I've been in love once, and that has been with my husband. Of course, I have been infatuated many times when I dated. True love is meant to last and not a social thing.

I have found love. No one is perfect so.we should work hard to maintain our relationship/marriage. We should try to spend maximum time with the family. This help strengthen relationships

I would tend to agree with you. What is the nature of love? We can fall "in love" with many aspects of a person. Is it in what they do for us? How they make us feel? These things aren't completely love I don't think, but I think they get confused for being the same thing as love. To truly love someone for who they are is far more difficult.

Sorry, love it is not overrated. It is neglected in the modern world and it`s a shame. If the society obliges couples to form unwanted relationships, that`s a matter of restricted free will, so blame the society not love. Love in any form is precious. Just wait and see...

No, in my opinion it is underrated. Many couples may get into a relationship just to fit in to the society as you mentioned here. But true love is something that couples need to built together to last forever.

Love is definitely over-rated. In the real world, money is more powerful. Many families breakout because of money problem. When a spouse loses a job, gets into debt, and the other one has to pay off the debt, that is almost halfway to a divorce. If this situation goes on for a long time, whatever romantic love will die because of money problem.
