I didn't. I've resented him from the start

How do I foster love?

I didn't love him when we first met. I was very much attracted to him buy it took me a couple months to actually love him.

Yes, we fell in love fairly quickly.

Yeah. Even when I don't think I could get any madder.

You choose to. Love is a verb. It's not some emotional sensation that causes you to put their needs first. It's a chosen action that you put work into the rest of your life.

If you never loved your husband but you think you should then choose to do so. Stop waiting to feel it, just bring the feelings around through your behavior.

If you never loved your husband and don't want to put the effort into loving him and can't turn back time to never have gotten with him, then do you, your kids and your husband a favor and get out of it.

Well, did you ever love him?  You must have at one point.

DH and I were friends for years before we fell in love.  When we did fall in love though, I fell pretty hard and quick!

Why would you marry someone you don't love? I've always loved my SO. We may not be married, but we love each other.

I always love him, even when he annoys me. Why get married if you didn't?

I loved my first husband from the moment I laid eyes on him.

My current husband loved me from the moment he laid eyes on me. I have never loved him, but I am deeply fond of him and wouldn't want to be with anybody else.
