Can Unconditional Love Exist in Romantic Relationships?

First of all, what is unconditional love?

Love that expects nothing back, places no limits, and does not set any ideals of condition on what or when it should be.

When you love someone without the expectation of how or if they will express love back to you.

This is the kind of love you see exhibited by parents and children and brothers and sisters.

But what about romantic relationships?

Yes, unconditional love has even existed in the best of romantic relationships.

How can you love someone unconditionally?

When you love someone unconditionally, you do not set limits or boundaries on that love, not circumstances that would cause you to withdraw it, there is nothing that would cause you to not love the person. Even if the other person intentionally wronged you, it is overlooked if you are truly committed to unconditional love.

Why is it important in any kind relationships?

When this kind of love is present, both partners feel more secure and neither of them seeks control. You do not try to control the actions of the other person, nor do you tell them you will not love them if they act a certain way or do a certain thing. Since there are no boundaries or conditions the people in a relationship of unconditional love do not have to worry about the other person leaving or not loving them over a particular situation or behavior.

If you love someone unconditionally you will want whatever is best for them and you will always give them the freedom to seek out the things that really give them happiness. Although they may make bad choices and do things that will wrong you, you will always be there for them and never judge them if you truly love them unconditionally.

When you truly love someone unconditionally, you place their needs and their happiness above everything else, including yourself.

Remember, just because you love someone in this way it does not mean that they will return their love to you in the same way.

To confirmed my answer from the question I placed...

The answer is yes. It does exist.

  1. So be a doormat? Let someone abuse you, call you names, decieve you and wrong you and stick around and take it until your spirituality and emotions are so dead and burried that you cannot get a grip on life? Die inside and be and do as commanded? Make no choices for yourself without experiencing abuse subtle or not from your partner because they do not agree with the fact that you do not want MUSTARD on your sandwich? Live in judgement and justification of every thought word action and feeling because someone else does not think feel act or see things the same way so suffer at the hand of their emotional instability and live NOT in Joy as God wishes us to do? Be at the hand of their control and feel imprisoned in every area of your life?

    PLEASE make sense of this to me beccause I do not understand it at all.
