Love is a Choice

October 22, 2011

“Love is a choice.” How often have you heard that?

Romantic love isn’t just a choice though. If love were just a choice, we could choose to love anyone, and that would be all that it would take for a successful relationship. The fact is that love takes more than just choice. Love takes passion and attraction.

A relationship can’t be all passion, or it won’t last. But it can’t be all choice either, or it won’t have a foundation to stand on. Someone recently put it this way, and got it just right, in my opinion:

“Romantic love is a combination of passion, attachment and respect. Nurturing those feelings is a choice. Commitment to those feelings is a choice which usually leads to marriage (any of those feelings can ebb and flow but commitment is what sees us thru the ebbs).”
