I have given lots of thought to the meaning of love and how people seem to get caught up loving more than one partner or how the love of family differs from the love of a friend, a pet etc... Some say we are not built to just love just one person throughout time - that we are on this planet to procreate. "Am I to believe that love fades away? - I do not, sounds like lust to me? and just like everything in this life worth having it takes serious work and the two people within the relationship have to learn how to fall in love with the other over and over - the demise of the relationship happens when both participants fall out of love at the same time; meaning during that time no one is working on falling in love again."
