Is Love Always Enough

Is love always enough?

Anyone who knows me knows I love to read and watch movies. About almost any topic, though I have my favorites.

I love a good love story. I don’t necessarily mean a sexy romance though it could be that too; but I do enjoy a well written love story.

It can’t be as easy as they saw each other and fell in love and all was well.

Real life love usually involves drama. Some more than others.

And love is important. It’s one of the most important things in life!

But is love enough? Once you get past the die hard “in love”, lovey dovey all day long stage…is knowing that no matter what else you love the other person, is that always enough?

Love is good and well. But what about when you’ve been married a few years, maybe have a few kids, and life gets in the way? Maybe you’re struggling to pay bills, or trust issues have come up, or health issues, etc etc? You don’t stop loving the other person, but deep down, is that love going to be enough at the end of the day?

Because it won’t pay the bills; and it won’t resolve the health issues or help you find a job. Sure, it makes it easier to get through those things, just like having a strong sense of faith and believing in God.

I don’t know the answer. Maybe there are several answers, and one works for you.

Can you love someone, but decide you can’t be with them anymore? Is that feeling of love, or rather, should love be enough of a reason to stay? Because no matter what else, you love them and that is good enough, despite the bad?

I’ve read a few books and watched a few TV movies lately that deal with relationships and love. And a lot of the time, you know who the main character “should” end up with, whether it’s the best choice.

For example, I watched a movie where a strong, independent woman falls in love and he seems to be everything she could ask for. Great job, well educated, family man, similar interests, goals in life. But then she meets this crazy guy who is almost the opposite of what she wants (and has) in a man! And he drives her nuts in the movie! And when all is said and done, she winds up with HIM and they’ll make it work because they love each other!

Is it that easy?


PS: Dear readers, this isn’t a cry for help, and I love my husband with all of my heart. This is just something that’s been on my mind and I wonder what other’s take on it is. That’s all.

PS x2: Dear husband and our parents, seriously, we’re all good. Just wondering what others thought about this topic.

    This is where commitment and honor step up and carry your relationship through the valley. I believe all relationships, not just marriages are tried. Satan knows what buttons to push for each of us. Is love always enough? No…but faith, commitment and seeing the bigger picture provide the strength to keep on going.
