  • I believe love isn't a choice... You love, want, need whoever God intends on you being with.. You can't help who you love..

  • I dont beleave love is a choice. It is impossible NOT to love someone of something. But I think you choose if you/how you ACT on that love.

  • Absolutely NOT! I was dating someone else when I met my husband and I knew from that moment I was going to marry him....we were only 16 and here we are at 25 with 2 kids..and I know there is no man i would rather be with...well unless it was Christian Bale, or maybe the Rock lol

  • The feeling of love is not a choice.
    But actually loving as in taking care of and being there for a person is a choice.
    You always have the option to leave and make that feeling go away.

  • Nothing is a choice. Everything is fate.

  • Yes, I believe that Love is a choice, however that being said, Chemistry is not. So you either feel that initial emotional pull to someone or you don't, but if you truly care for someone yes, that can turn into love. Chemistry would be the difference in loving someone like a brother or loving someone like a partner.

  • I think you are first attracted to someone. Like something about them.

    But after you've been married it becomes a choice. When life gets in the way it's a choice to stay. To love when the " first feelings" of it are gone.
