Can you continue to love someone who has betrayed your trust?

I have been betrayed more than once by the same person. I guess I was pretty naive and too understanding towards that person. A the result, I got played out. Can you keep on loving people who have betrayed your trust over and over again? How can I do it?

yes. I think it is more difficult to stop loving someone than it is to keep loving them. They may have lost your trust, and that is a difficult thing to earn back - but your love? I think love once truly given is never taken away. Especially in marriage, where the two have become one flesh.

You are right. Luckily I wasn't referring to my spouse. It was someone related still. At least I have decided to not associate with that person anymore. We may meet and still greet but no more any kind of dealings at all. I let my heart remain pure.

I personally cannot. Once you have lost my trust, you have lost my love. Of course, there is unconditional love for immediate family, but like I have to love my parents even if they are axe murderers. However, when it is somebody you choose to love, trust is a big component of love, without trust, there is no love.
