They say, if you will going to go on a married life, you must have the love to each other. The love that will bind you as husband and wife. But now a days, a lot of married people does not have the love to each other. That they dont feel it before they enter into a married life. That sometimes, they just follow what their minds dictates. Nevertheless, there are times, they just follow what has been arranged. Hence, this one of the ingredients or shall I say the main ingredients of the relationship. That, without love, almost everything will not work. Somehow, it will create a domino effect because if you dont love the person you had married, it will just lead to complication and eventually will lead to disruption. However, do you think that love is really important in a marriage life? Do you agree that love can be learned from the start?

Yes, Love is very very important to marriage life. If there is no love between a husband and wife, there is no point in living together.

I do think love is important in marriage and actually in any relationship married or not. I think the hardest part is in finding someone that feels the same as you do and shares your same values. I loved my husband...I really did. He will tell you even to this day that he loved me as well. I can't judge his feelings but all I can say is if that is what he calls love....we both have very different dictionaries. People are constantly changing and you both have to be committed to the relationship itself and working with the changes. If one is not then the relationship is destined to crash and burn.

Love and understanding are the two main ingredients of a good and happy marriage. They both complement each other. One cannot love without understanding and you can never understand a person if you do not love him. In today's digital era people prioritize money and so can see many failed marriages. Like one of our friend has said there is not point in staying together when you do not love each other. In love marriage it is from the start and they should nurture it till the end but in arranged marriages it blossoms when they start understanding each other as they are strangers when they get married. Again today people try to spend time with each other before marriage learning the likes and dislikes of the person which i feel is a positive approach provided it remains within limits. Happy mylotting.

Love, true love, is a decision, not an emotion. emotional love, while important, isn't love, but lust. The true love that binds a couple together for life is a decision. the decision to put the needs and wants of another above your own. if you can't do that, you're far too immature, and you have no business getting married. You'll make your spose miserable with youe demands, which means you'll be miserable.

Love, understand, adjustment are common factors in a marriage life . Without love marriage life is a big zero . I am married and we love each other . In successful life love, understand & adjustment is compulsory.
