I don't think so. Things happen, people change.

Depends on what the reason you "fell out of love" was I think. But I do think that it is possible to fall out of love with someone, just as it is to fall in love with someone. I also believe that it is possible to be in love with more than one person at the same time. Every person is different and so is their version/opinion of love.

No.  There are many reasons that a person might feel like they have fallen out of love.  I think it is possible to get those feelings back.

Yes, I'd say so.

To OP...no I don't think so. To the lady I quoted....DH and I went through some serious issues last year. I felt like I didn't love him anymore and that our flame died out. I almost left, but something just told me not to. It took a ton of work and it wasn't easy, but we got it back! I am so glad I didn't run away from our issues and instead worked them out. In the long run...we are stronger as a couple now more than we ever were before!

That is great that you two stayed together and made it work.

I honestly think that phrase is a sad excuse to end a relationship because it is generally used when there is another person in the picture rather an affair has already occured or you've been tempted.

No and yes...Sometimes the way a person grows and changes over the years can make them into someone you don't love. You love who they were, but not who they've become

I am not having an affair. There is no one in the picture. I have zero romantic/sexual attraction towards my husband.

I still feel that people use that phase as an excuse. I have had it used on me and watched my fil use it on mother in law then get back with her six months later.  I truely feel that marriage is like having a full time job you have to work to keep the spark. it doesn't just stick around. I love my dh with all my heart, but sometimes I know we need to do more for us becasue i feel a disconnection but I know it is simply because of lack of trying. Now sometimes men can do things to make us hate them despise them. I just think once you love someone you will always love them unless they abuse you i can see losing all feelings for them at that point, but I do not have a serious ex that i can say when the relationship ended I didn't still love them I just knew we weren't right for each other.
