That's the only way to love. Hormones make you see all that is right with them. Then they wear off and reality kicks in.
Everyone has good qualities and bad. Love means seeing the good and ignoring the bad.
But you need to help each other get there, because you can't just erase your brain.
Take each others good qualities and blow them up, enlarge them in your eyes and there's, give compliments, tell each other, those reasons why you love them.
Then you can mention a little of the bad qualities, but then cover them with even more good ones.
Then you'll find, that the hate becomes the reason to work on love. It's only as real as you understand that it's a place to fill with love. Then you're even happy about hating.
Otherwise it becomes an illusion, where you blame the other for your own faults.
True love has no opposites, but egoic love does. As you can see from the comments, most experience egoic love without realizing it, and then they think it's the same as non egoic love. This is because most of us identify thought and ego as who we are, but it's not.
We are that which watches the thoughts, that which is beyond, underneath. We are the watcher, not the thinker. We are not our thoughts...

Yes. The opposite of love is not hate, it is indifference. When you don't care anymore is when you need to leave.
But it is like with your kid. You can love them, but not like them very much. The love overrides all, but you might not like who they are/what they've done at that time.
The love-hate relationship. You can. It just shows there is more depth to your relationship. Like with dogs and cats, you love them, but sometimes, they can be bad. As long as you love them more than you hate them, that's a healthy relationship, or at least from what we know.
