Maryam’s Keenly Observed Facts of Life (Part 34)

Love and Responsibility go hand in hand.

If you profess to Love but can’t be Responsible for your Love, then, in effect, you cannot profess to Love.

  1. Interesting. Thats food for thought…never pondered on this….or linked responsibility to love since you get numerous teenboppers who are so irresponsible yet declare their love for their partner.

    Would you say love is tied to maturity and therefore responsibility?

  2. infatuation and lust is not the same thing as love. perhaps many of the teenyboppers are hooked on the first 2, and don’t yet understand the maturity (and responsibility) required for the 3rd.

  3. Mr Angry: Unsure what you mean…care to elaborate?

    Sumera: what Dreamlife said. This “fact” was inspired by hearing stories like “i love her, but i can’t marry her” or “i love him, but i can’t be with him” – situations where one party is not willing to give something up to be with the person they supposedly love. TO my mind you don’t get to say you love someone if you’re not willing to accept responsibility for your actions and words.

    But then again, I don’t think you can profess to love someone if you havent actually been through some reality checks with that person.

  4. Sorry Maryam, what I meant is people who don’t want to be monogomous often use a line like “My love wants to be free” or “I can’t limit my love to one person.” What I really think is they don’t want to take responsibility. I agree with you, without the responsibility it isn’t really love.
