Can you fall out of love?

I've been married almost ten years and I'm being to feel that I'm with my DH not because I love him but because it's habit. I don't want to hurt him or the kids but i'm not sure I love him anymore. It's not like he's a bad husband or father and we rarely fight.

What can I do?

  • Relationships go up and down, they wax and wane. Its natural. Tell him you feel and set aside time to try to get some of what you miss back. I love my husband, but after ten years next month, I am not in love with him anymore. Maybe someday I will again but right now I think we are both just more focused on other things than each other. He work and school, me the three kids. Its easy to drift away from each other, but it doesn't mean you can't come full circle together again.

  • Yes, and it can happen quickly if you take your partner for granted.

  • Yes you can.... love needs to be nurtured ... if you don't take care of will die.

  • When I burn out I tell SO to fix things bc I'm not happy. I get bored easily so he has to keep things hopping to keep my attention. I'm not high maintenance money- wise but am attention-wise.

  • Try to go out more. Have more fun with him. Have more family time.
    Hope it goes well=)

  • my husband seems to think so. True love..i dont agree. I will never stop loving him, but he says his loves "faded" for me. In two months, either he never really did, or hes just lying and its something else.
