One of the problems with people today is that they misunderstand what love is. Love is a choice, not a feeling. Choose to love your husband.

I'm not a spambot
What the fuck are you talking about? Coke or Pepsi is a choice. Taking the interstate for a drive of a shorter duration is a choice. What flick to see is a choice. The feeling I have for friends or family or foods or activities etc. is LOVE. It is something that is beyond my control. I LOVE Redheads. It is not a choice. something from my past, my genes or psyche or something has dictated that I love the colour of natural red hair. According to you I am opting for a fetish? No. It is a desire within me. I would not marry someone and then choose to love them. The love would have to be there already. jesus shitting christ has that book fucked up you people's heads so bad that you don't know what love and hate are supposed to be about anymore? Is it because you are told to love a genocidal dictator? Or because he tells you he is the god of love and then tells you to love him or you go to hell? Or because he teaches you to hate normal people who like to have sex? You hate groups of people because your god or one of his prophets told you that queers are bad, or drunks are bad then gleefully encourages you to kill in the loving name of god? If you want to marry the deacon's daughter and live a stagnant and sexless marriage for the rest of your loveless life because it's what you percieve love to be, then fine. Just don't go dragging others down your same twisted path of illogical conclusions based on the contridictions of a dated book of fables that equates your wife to a piece of livestock.

I would add that marriage involves work sometimes at maintaining a good relationship -- but otherwise, I agree with Redhunter.

<<< Love is a choice, not a feeling. >>>
Spoken like someone who doesn't have a fucking clue what love is.

Marriages fail because people like you are too stupid to understand it.

And that's why breaking up is never difficult, divorces are never messy, and the death of a spouse of partner is as easy to get over as flipping a light switch ( I fully envision Gawdspawn, that bible-thumping bit of celestial jism, pulling a full Cletus-moment; "A light switch?")
I can't force myself to like onions, or to love my asshole uncle, or to love anybody else. It's not a fucking choice, you gawddamned toad-licker! I just can't explain it any better then that. You lick toads, and you are wrong. The end!

Stupid isn't a choice.
