About Love…


have a heart

“Love is a decision, it is a judgment, it is a promise. If love were only a feeling, there would be no basis for the promise to love each other forever. A feeling comes and it may go. How can I judge that it will stay forever, when my act does not involve judgment and decision.”

Erich Fromm

    1. Thank you for the comments. 🙂
      I think our culture leads us to believe that we have to find someone special – that certain someone who is worthy. I think if we geared ourselves to find someone who shared some interests, who shared some viewpoints and who was willing to work as hard as we to build a shared future, we’d be much better off. Looking through the fairy tale lens, or trying to find the person who fits the perfect mate definition often leaves us in bewilderment when it’s not perfect like we expected.

      I’m glad that Almighty gives the man a choice to leave a displeasing woman – in my opinion, that option, when utilized as intended, helps to prevent some of the domestic violence. It also gives the woman the option to be pleasing – or not – and know which outcome to expect based on such.

      I also think we need to be more concerned about the vows we make. It’s a good thing to keep your promises. There’s always the option to decide just to be together without the vow. 🙂
