    Unconditional love

    Advertisements
    Something I've been pondering about is this, when you tell someone you love them do you mean you love them unconditionally or is unconditional love something that does or should take time? Can you love someone and not love them unconditionally?
    I've been known as
    "The Enforcer" and NavyHeart


    Once more into the fray...
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.
    Live or die on this day...
    Live and die on this day.

    I think love can absolutely be conditional. I love my husband a ton but I wouldn't say unconditionally.

    My love is absolutely conditional. There arent many conditions, but if he beat me, my love goes away. You kill someone (on purpose not like a horrible accident), my love goes away. You hurt our, or really any children, especially in a sexual way? Love is gone. The idea of unconditional love is terrifying and unrealistic IMO.

    How are we defining unconditional? How are we defining love?

    Yep. I mean I love my dog unconditionally but I don't think I love any humans unconditionally. Maybe my grandma. I'd kick my husband to the curb for like a hundred things off the top of my head.

    I love my husband very deeply, but I honestly can say that I do not love him unconditionally. If he ever became homicidal, I would have a hard time continuing to love him.

    My love is unconditional, my continued presence in their life is not IMO.

    My love for my husband is conditional. My love for my daughter is unconditional.

    The only people I love unconditionally are myself and my kids. My love for my husband has conditions. For example, if he abuses me or our kids that love will disappear.

    Only my love for my son is unconditional. I'm sure there are many things that he could do that would hurt me deeply but I'll always love him no matter what.
