I wish this illness heals her realtionship.*p* LEENA JHA July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am I believe that if sickness cannot bring back the love, then love never existed. What was there was just a relationship in whch they were forced into or was just an infatuation. *p* LEENA JHA July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am I think you have answered for yourself. That compassion and attachement is love. It doesn't subside with illness. It exist but in its natural form for the couple to feel it again.*p* DrSanjeevTrivedi July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am *p**p*A staff nurse may be providing care and sympathising very closely. Would you call it love and romance ? *p* LEENA JHA July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am Only time will tell…*p* LEENA JHA July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am Caring is love. Isn't it? You care for only those whom you love. *p* LEENA JHA July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am What is care, sympathy and closeness if not love?*p* LEENA JHA July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am I too believe that love is always there. You only need some outside force to realize it.*p* Priya Jindal July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am It can. If the differences were minor and the two still deeply cared for each other. However, if the differences were on fundamental issues or they had fallen out of love with each other, then something extreme like this can actually end the relationship sooner than later.*p* Aditi Ray Bose July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am I don't think so. If the romance has otherwise flown out of the window, falling ill will not bring it back. If it's a husband-wife duo, then at best it will be a performing of duties (if at all because there are cases when even if one partner is I'll, the other goes about doing his stuff). And if it is a gf-bf duo, then all that will happen is a message saying 'get well soon' (assuming that despite the no-romance, they share a friendly camaraderie). *p* Rupali Tiwari July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am I dont think so. Yes there are incidences when a spouse may feel compassion and attachment when watchin his or her better half in pain or suffering but that is just a form of empathy any relationship would demand. *p**p*Yes it may arouse a feeling of need between them. You may start noticing them more after their bout of illness subsides but that wont be for long. Then again it depends on the severerity of the disease and the type of relationship they both share*p* Swapnil Narendra July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am It varies from couple to couple, where some people decide to leave their partners after one of them gets really sick (like paralyzed), there have been cases where the dedication and care of the spouse rekindles the love between the two. *p**p* *p**p*The couples in the latter category also sometimes devise a strange way to fulfill each other's sexual libido. *p**p* *p**p*So in conclusion, it depends whether the couple had the zeal to work on each other when one of them gets sick. There is no black or white answer for this question.*p* I am Krishna July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am I read somewhere…anu Aga said the quality of her relationship really changed when he became paralyzed. It may sound brutal, but people change and hence relationships change. Nice input! *p* abhaychawla13 July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am Don't think it does.if an illness n disease brings a couple together than it will be more like charity love rather than real love. In fact it might lead to loathing later as the partner of the ill will feel trapped by the illness or disease.*p* DrSanjeevTrivedi July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am *p**p*Unfortunately not. The care, sympathy or closeness may improve but not the romance.*p**p* *p**p*Depending upon the severity or the disease condition, there may be a vexing gap in the relationship, in some cases.*p* Ayushi July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am It does. Sometimes we need some illness or disease which can build the faith again in the love which is lost.The disease helps the partners to come closer and understand each other better. That's how an ailment helps the couple to rekindle the lost love.*p* Anonymous July 13, 2017 - 10:22 am Leave a Comment Cancel ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
