I admit that nothing sets my teeth on edge quite as much as hearing someone say about two people who are CLEARLY dysfunctional, “But they love each other.” It’s as if LOVE is enough. From my viewpoint, it isn’t.
I read something the other day that explains love as the glue that binds a relationship. The author’s point was that love binds together the two people, their common interests, values, morals, goals, and children, etc. However, if there was nothing to bind, than love was as useless as a bottle of glue.
It’s definitely something to ponder.
