Flowers Need Watering

Unconditional love is not always the answer. Perhaps that shocks you. The idea of unconditional love, in marriage, makes some spouses think they don’t have to do anything to be loved. It makes them feel entitled to your love, leaving them to do whatever they please. But, just as a spiritual relationship requires faith, a marital relationship requires meeting the emotional needs of the other. One spouse cannot save a marriage. It was meant to be a joint effort, a mutual promise. Healthy relationships require nurturing, time and priority, a.k.a. conditions. Neglect to tend your garden and even the most hardy plants will perish. Neglect is the tool most capable and the reason most attributed to for slowly extinguishing relational love. Even a love that is unfailing is not necessarily a love that is unconditional. ©PS 2015
