I believe that love SHOULD be enough, it's just that life gets in the way and sometimes we choose to let life bring us down. I believe that the truest evidence of love would probably be time. Don't get me wrong, it's always easy to have an agreement to make life easier for the both of you but like the fray sang "sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same. I also look at my parents as proof, 36 odd years with someone you fight with almost daily can't be easy. Add children, jobs, and many, many other things and I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't go crazy by now but I really see how much they love each other not by seeing how sweet they are (which they are, sometimes TOO sweet) but by how at the end of every single day they will talk and they will ask for forgiveness from each other rather than simple sweeping it under the rug.
Regarding the "Why isn't love enough" post.
She asks (and I ask too) simply why love isn't enough to keep two people together. And also keep each other in some degree of happiness.
That can't be too much to ask or expect (or hope for, for that matter), can it? :(
Love should be enough. It should be the ideal but you know the thing about ideals, they are difficult to attain.
Is too much to ask? If the partner is willing to accept the selfless act of giving yourself by giving his own self to you, then there’s no need to ask,expect, or demand anything because everything has already been given so it is not too much to ask.
The hard part is finding the person that is willing to accept. Giving yourself to the person who is not willing to accept you is a recipe for a shitstorm.
