  • i guess yes...otherwise there would be no separation if love is still there..But for me relationship is more on "commitment" not just about feelings..Both parties has own role to play to keep the relationship keep the love to grow and nurture...Once one commit himself/herself in a relationship one must keep the love for each other for more satisfying and lasting relationship..maybe you are just bored...Sex is very important in a relationship..this is where the body and mind unite and become one in spirit..Communication is likewise very vital.Have a talk.Do not just rely on what you feel..we have our mind to control our emotions and our thoughts. Bring back the days why u chose him..Why you love him..5 years is something..Don't loose it.Relationship must be work out for better and happy life!

  • I don't think its normal if you were in love when you got married. Sure, everyone goes thru trying times, but,for love to fade away, there has to be a reason.Maybe being together for 5 years has gotten to be boring for you 2 or you could be taking each other for granted. If you don't want things to just fade away, start dating again,find the spark that brought you 2 together in the first place. Find out why things seem to be going wrong. Both of you need to work on it, its 2 sided, not 1. Let him know how you feel and see what that does. If he doesn't know something is wrong, then he can't work to fix it.Do fun things together. Fall in love again!☺

  • I think love can fade away... sometimes people grow apart. maybe you need to kick start your marriage with some excitement and something new and make new memories!

  • You might have been experiencing infatuation or puppy love, and those feelings do fade.

    Feelings come and go, but true love stays forever. No matter how you feel on that particular day or week or month, you know that you still love the person and you know that the "love feelings" will come back.

    Marriage is hard work and it takes work to make those feelings come back. You have to put effort into it.

  • yep which is why I'm one that believes relationships/marriages should be renegotiated every 5 yrs. I'm not a until death do us part type of person. At the end of five years you either renew your contract or don't. If you don't you just move on in life. It just sounds so simple to me!
