Last week I asked you guys on social media to tell me what respect looks like in a marriage. Overwhelmingly trust and love go hand in hand to create respect. You can not have love without respect, everyone agrees. I also took a poll, I asked how many people have spoken poorly of their spouse to others, 78% said yes and 22% said no.   Regardless of the definition you give respect when it comes to marriage, when you break it down, respect is trust, being truthful and trustworthy.

When you feel love for someone its is brain chemicals causing a physical reaction, it can come and go depending on the situation. The feeling of love is created by dopamine, remember the episode on porn? Something happens to your brain that creates the feeling of love. It creates a habit forming response.

Your brain isn't receiving the response needed to create the chemicals that make you feel love. This euphoria can be prompted in you by anyone, not just your partner, if given the right measures that your brain requires to trigger the love feelings. Therefore, you could love anyone who can trigger this brain response for you...hence why so many people leave their spouse for another thinking they have fallen out of love with their spouse and in love with someone else, no you didn't, your brain is playing tricks on you and I give you sometime and you will end up in the same situation with your new love as your last love because you do not understand what LOVE really is, IT IS NOT A FEELING. When those chemicals are not being triggered anymore, and it will happen, your on to your next boubt of unhappiness thinking its your spouse and why does this always happen to you! It happens to everyone, yup, all of us, the difference is understanding wha...
