    Do you believe that true love can really overcome all obstacles in a relationship? If both partners are truly in love?

    If you don't believe this, what kinds of obstacles can't be overcome?

    Sexual attraction.
    However, that's only from my point of view. I've talked to some people who say they can "become" sexually attracted to another person if they love them enough. Not that I buy it, but I'm not in their shoes so I really don't know.

    Distance can break the most stable relationship over time. Fact.

    So can repeat cheating.

    love can resolve matters, not necessarily overcome them. Love is all about the other person and doing for them. If it is done properly, it is always a win win.....but unfortunately a shit load of people are playing without reading the rulebook...............................keithicon_cool.gif

    Mmmhmmm...its true.
    Its not the emotion per se, but the person handling the emotion who has the issue.

    Love is always for you.
    But are You for Love?

    Only if love is unconditional. Love is more than just s feeling, it is also a choice

    No.

    Some things are simply unforgivable. Like if your partner cheats on you so much that he accidentally gives you a disease or something.

    Love is out the window at that point.

    Yes

    People who are truly in love would not run around cheating on each other either, thats just silly. icon_wink.gif

    Love can, but I don't think being in love can. The two are quite different, and I think both are necessary for a great relationship.

    So......yes love can, but sometimes being in love is destroyed.

    I hate when people quote in these forums, but this far down I'm not sure if you'd know what I was responding to.

    Love conquering all is a familiar Hollywood theme, and the basis of most Harlequin Romance novels.

    There's a line from Manhattan Murder Mystery where Woody Allen turns to his wife and says "We should move to Mexico and sell blankets off the hood of a car."

    When you're willing to move to the North Pole, or wherever it takes, just so you can be together and stay together, that's true love.

    If we didn't believe that was possible, those of us looking for love would have given up long ago, and jumped off of the ship.

    The two obstacles that can't be overcome are loyalty and respect......loyalty and not to cheat with another guy and the respect to honor loyalty....BUD
