Happy couple with woman laughing hard

Helloooooooo... It's another weekend. How was the week? We had so many renovations going on at home and as you would guess, lots of arrangements and rearrangements, packing and repacking. It's a lot of physical stress but the end result is beautiful, innit?

Like we started last week Saturday, we will be having another Question of the Week. I want to take this time to also appreciate those who contributed and made that post interactive. I would like us to make this one also as interactive as that.

So,  question - love dies when there's no money. True or False? Why?

False. Love is long-suffering, if love dies as a result of lack of money, then it is not love. The foundation for love must never be money. If the love of money is the root to all evil, then true love cannot take money as it's foundation. If love dies because there is no money, then it was never love.

If that was the impression created at the beginning of the relationship.

It depends on the kind of love being professed. Love as I know it is a commitment of the will - a commitment to a person irrespective of circumstances. In fact, a test of love is the attitude of the lovers in the absence of money. If it fails then it wasn't love in the first place.

I guess love should burn the more in difficult times, rather than it bein based on materialisticscterms. True lov is expressed n made known in challening times. So, the type of love expressed durin periods of hard times will sorely depend on the base of the relationship.

Love should not die in the absence of money. True love does not die nothing is potent enough to kill it. Except the relationship was built round material things of course, love should sustain two people when they experience tough times

Love in its real sense is more of a decision than a feeling. If the former is the basis of the relationship, then with or without money, love will stand the test of financial constraints. If the latter is the case, feelings will definitely change when things go sour financially.

The major crux however is the foundation. If it's built on money and material things, well, it's expected to grow cold amd eventually die when money is missing.

If in the absence of money, the love they share begins to shake, would we still conclude that they never loved?

Love doesn't die. Money intensive activities are only toned down

See ego is important in this life. Love can die. Money answereth all things. It doesn't mean they don't love each other. The shock of money disappearing all of a sudden can cause a big problem if there is no shock absorber.

That might mean the relationship was founded on comfort, convenience and the "fluttering of the heart" kind of love, and not the love of will and commitment. So if the former is true for them, then they never loved.
