Love Can’t Be Overemphasized

Is It Love Or Infatuation? This is a question that you, as a youth, have to confidently answer without doubt in relationship. Yes, this is what you have to know; you have to be able to clearly differentiate between these two words if you really want to be successful maritaly in your life—because this is very important in determining true marriage relationship and its future. You must know and understand that love is an essential factor, force, and a vital ingredient and a foundation stone in building a marriage relationship.

The issue of love cannot be overemphasized in building a very healthy, peaceful, meaningful and lasting and effective relationship: and therefore you, as a youth, should not marry anyone you cannot bring yourself to love; you must marry someone you can be living with for the rest of your life in true pure love.

But unfortunately, today, it’s a thing of great concern that there are a lot of young people, even adults, who are living a life of delusion because of their inability to differentiate clearly from love and infatuation, and thus living in darkness state of deceit, error and utter disappointment years round. As a result, they grow up with a very distorted idea of love; they have learnt to confuse real love with infatuation, and to idealise marriage into something it can never be. I think light should be shed upon this to put an end to these distorted idea of love because of confusion in determining the difference between love and Infatuation.

Definition Of Love And Infatuation

What is love?
Now, any discussion of love faces great difficulty of definition every day. People seem to find it difficult to get a definite meaning to what is called love. But, we are fortunate that we have a reliable source of reference, the Bible, that gives us clear definition, clear meaning of what love basically is, in simple, short and clear sentence beyond any reasonable doubt. Love receives its definition in Scriptures only by a listing of its attributes: love is kind, love does not behave rudely, love does not seek its own, love thinks no evil… 1 Corinthians 13: 4-7.

In broader definition, real love is an expression of the deepest appreciation for another human being, an intense awareness of his or her needs and longings for the past, present and the future.

What is Infatuation?
To simply put, Infatuation is also referred to as “lust. Infatuation is the state of being carried away by an unreasoned passion.

Truly, Infatuation can lead to true relationship, but the fact here is that Infatuation, often times, leads to sudden break-up of relationship between two partners.

Is Your Relationship Driven By Love Or Infatuation?

The question here is, is your relationship driven by love or infatuation? To know this, as said earlier, you’ve got to be able to differentiate clearly between love and infatuation, and here is how to know: it’s highly ideal for you—for every partners—to know maybe the relationship you are into now is driven whether by love or Infatuation, as this will speedily prevent you from suffering from ignorance in the journey of your relationship to marriage. And, the best way to know/do this is to have a close study on the relationship itself and find out the major basic differences between love and Infatuation. Knowing the differences between love and Infatuation is a key step to knowing your relationship status. Thus, I will like to make a quick reference to cite a site here, so that you could have a clear understanding of what I am trying to pass across to you, so as to be easy for you to know the status of your relationship easily without effort: mind you, If after reading this reference, you find out that the points made here is occurring in your relationship, then you’ve got to take necessary step before it’s too late because breaking relationship is better than breaking marriage:

Love develops gradually over time. Infatuation occurs almost instantaneously. Love can last a long time. It becomes deeper and more powerful over time. Infatuation is powerful, but short-lived. Love accepts the whole person, imperfections and all. Infatuation flourishes on perfection—you have an idealized image of your partner and you only show your partner your good side. Love is more than physical attraction. Infatuation focuses on the physical. Love is energizing. Infatuation is draining. Love improves your overall disposition. Infatuation brings out jealousy and obsessiveness. It causes you to neglect other relationships. Love survives arguments. Infatuation glosses over arguments. Love considers the other person. Infatuation is selfish. Love is being in love with a person. Infatuation is being in love with love. (Sexuality Resource Center For Parent)

Those above differences are what I see as the basic and precise truth about the two subjects discussed here: love and Infatuation. You should now be able to see the differences between the two clearly, so as to know the status of your relationship easily without effort.

Conclusion

You’ve Got To Know that If a relationship is driven by Infatuation, then such a relationship is at the brink of sudden break-up without warning or remedy; it will never last. But if a relationship is driven by true love, then such a relationship will enjoy long life-span; it will be strong, peaceful and meaningful. Love and infatuation are two different things in relationship with different purposes.
