A podcast listener (accurately) noted that I don’t talk too much about love. The listener wanted to just get back to the love they had shared at one time, and wanted to know how to fall back in love. I responded with, “What do you mean by ‘love’?” The response started with “I don’t know,” and continued with “but how do we fall back in love?" And there is the root of the problem. We have been struggling to define and describe what love even is for centuries, if not millennia. And we are still trying. More than that, the loving feeling is not what you really are trying to return to. It is certainly a side-effect, but not what you want to try for. And more than that, love is not even a clear indicator of marital success — maybe because it is so hard to define and describe. In this episode of the Save The Marriage Podcast, I talk the question, “What About Love?” Where does it fit into your efforts to save your marriage? Where does it fit into any marriage?
