    Do you think you can love a partner unconditionally?

    Or does love always come with conditions? Alternatively, is the love unconditional but the relationship conditional?

    Think of the things that your parents would (or should have) loved you anyways through, like drug abuse or whatever.

    I'd go with the love is unconditional but with conditions in the relationship.

    I don't think anything he could do would make me stop loving him but there are things he could do that would make it impossible for me to stay with him. So love is unconditional, but the relationship is conditional.

    I'll be honest. I don't think that ANY person can love unconditionally. I consider that agape love-- the love of God. Perfect love. And I don't think that human beings are capable of it. I do, however, think that we can attempt to love unconditionally and do the best that we can.

    i think there are things someone can do that would make me question my love for them or maybe why i loved them. i'm not sure what that means for unconditional. the more i think about it i don't think i can personally love someone unconditionally. others might though.

    Love is unconditional, and the relationship is conditional, but after too much time of being in a crappy relationship because of the problem, the love would go away. So I guess that means love is also conditional, but slower to go away than a relationship.

    Things that would break my relationship- drug abuse, cheating, emotional/physical abuse towards myself or anyone really, fucking us over financially (without cause, like if a poor investment is made thats not really his fault, while things like gambling would be his fault).

    I would have a reallllllly hard time loving someone who committed a heinous crime ie murder. I honestly don't think I could love them.
