    Hey Real Jockers. I'm in a relationship now with countless ups and downs. I know that no one's perfect, but at times, it just seems the powers-that-be are against us. In my heart, though, I really do feel we love each other.

    So, without getting too far down into the weeds, my question to you: Does love really conquer all?

    "Does love really conquer all?"

    --NO, not without a butt load of communication.

    Nope. It doesn't conquer anything. It isn't even playing Risk.

    It depends on what kind of love you were talking about...

    If it's human love, there always will be bias and limitations.
    Divine love is something that transcend the finite human love and this divine love unlike human love will radiate equally to each and every living being on earth.

    So, when you hear the phrase "Love conquers all" or "It's only love that can save humanity" etc. etc. something like that. Those phrases were actually referring to the 'divine love'.

    I hope this answers your question!

    -relationships are a lot of work, love / sex are necessary but like the 20%.

    -Things are on the rag when the "I Love You" texts slow down. He has no idea know how you think, so tell him. Catch him while you two are together driving for for a family discussion. Listen to him even if your mind is made up. Bring home a small junk gift on the odd day.

    -takes two to argue, if you feel it coming tell him you love him and leave the room. Never escalate a situation.

    -its possible to have a household different from your parents. Be the continuation of your parents. Pull out what you saw that worked.
    Google, read up on what makes a good relationship. Some LGBT Center locations have free couples training. As you enter into a new phase in your life you can be smart; lots of information out there.

    First of all, congratulations on finding love!

    It really depends on the person(s). You have to decide whether or not you want it to conquer all and how you want to define love. Love is a very personal thing.

    LOL Weed - Yes; Weeds - No! Just kidding.

    Communication is definitely very important, and that's one of our challenges. We have different styles. That doesn't mean that we're doomed though, right? We just gotta keep fighting toward a common ground? Yeah? Hopefully? icon_neutral.gif

    Different styles???

    Let me guess; he likes to let it clog up, wait till your out having a nice dinner than bring it all up, in the hopes you won't loose your shit in puplic, ruining the "night out"?

    If by different "styles" you mean different perceptions, it absolutely doesn't mean that you're doomed to fail. It means that you will argue and disagree as rarely or often as your conflict resolution skills allow you to. I agree that finding a "common ground" or happy medium is essential a lot of the time. A lot of other times, you will simply just need to agree to disagree.

    Speaking of weed, where love doesn't conquer all, weed fixes everything. Some night, you just have to throw in the towel, smoke a bowl and go to bed - you'll forget you're even arguing icon_biggrin.gif .

    I kid, I kid.

    Rolfron speaks great wisdom here:
    weed or not; 2-3 days down the line do you really remember what the argument was all about?

    a discord is about to start up; say i love you and walk out of the room, dont escalate the situation, just walk away.

    I am about a week away of walking away from a fifteen month relationship with the love of my life. So I am waiting to see if love can overcome reality.

    This question is kinda broad and very vague. Lol, you have to tell us what kind of *problems you encounter I guess. I definitely fell in love twice before. I had a good run with both of those guys but I wouldn't say that *Love conquers all or all of my problems. It may be off topic but I think you just need to love yourself first and be happy with yourself first in order to love anyone back in return. So this question is very vague and kinda confusing to answer. icon_wink.gificon_razz.gif
