I would have to disagree.. I love my parents unconditionally.. I love my children unconditionally. And I love my husband unconditionally.. dont matter what they do... I still and always will love them...
@Stacie3 It certaintly doesn't feel like conditional love but it doesn't mean it isn't. We love because we get something from it, your parents have secured your love with the love they showed you while raising you, parents are programmed to love/care for their children because they are the ones carrying on their genes, partnership also comes with conditions - you love your husband because he is the man he is and because of how he makes you feel/what gives you as a spouse (care, security etc).
I knew I loved my husband the very 1st day I met him. My love for him is just as strong today as it was that day and everyday forward. My husband is currently by no means a great man. I spend more time crying over how he treats me then anyone should ever cry for a living person. Most of my family has turned their back on me including my adult children becuz I haven't been able to leave him and they hate the way he treats me. YOU may not be able to give unconditional love but trust me it is possible and there are many people who give it!!
@Stacie3 If you are saying this you have not understood.That unconditional love you have it's only that you have not too much conditions to love, but there are conditions. If you discover your husband keep cheating on you or have a second family with another woman and several children... you'll keep loving unconditionally? Beign faithful is a condition. Beign honest is a condition. Not having more than one family is a condition. Unspoken conditions but conditions after all. About children, that love is probably the one with less conditions. Still have conditions. Normal mothers won't have to face the existence of those conditions, but if you happen to have a monster as a son, it won't be easy to pretend that love it's unconditional if you find your son guilty of raping and mutilating a woman or several. I've have heard mothers after discovering that and couldn't feel love anymore. Which mean there are conditions even for our children, even if those are very extreme and very weird.In any case, I hope you never have to face the situations in which you'd discover the existence of those unspoken conditions. Also, over everything else, I hope that conditional or not, there's love in your life.
@Stacie3 Ok, if he treats you that badly you may have convinced me that you do love him unconditionally, but that is a mental illness that is bad for yourself.
@Stacie3 this isn't unconditional love this is abuse! The only thing you're telling us right now is that we need to be abusive for the other person to love us which is stupid!
Yes!! I would
