 He has to love you more than you love him.

 

 

 

 

Agree/disagree? Thoughts?

 FTR: I don't think it's the only way marriage works, but after being in a marriage that was the opposite of that I was actually looking for that. Now I think we're a little more equally matched.

I believe the key to marriage is never falling out of love with each other at the same time.

 Oh! Oh! I love that too! Because the passion part rises and falls in cycles, so that makes perfect sense. Everything is fine so long as you're not both out of love at the same time. Are we on the same page or did I misunderstand you?

Quoting HippieMomma86:

I believe the key to marriage is never falling out of love with each other at the same time.

IMHO, marriage takes love and respect from both sides. I do not believe one should love more than the other.

Disagree. But I don't agree that its 50/50 either. Nothing in life is truly 50/50. As long as you are both in it and committed the marriage will work. Love isn't static, its constantly changing and growing and the degrees will vary through the years. Its how much work you put in that determines the rest.

Disagree, love alone can't sustain a marriage. It also takes equal parts participation, and a common goal.

I know that  marriage can and will work if you learn to just deal with an issue as soon as it's there, keeping things inside is never good for an relationship. Say what you feel, talk about it and grow from it.
