It feels good to be loved, but sometimes the world around you forgets that. Even worse, sometimes that person can be your spouse. Whether that love is void or lacking, it doesn’t mean that you can’t still love on them. Marriage is about unconditional love. Don’t make your love for them be dependent on theirs for you.
If you love only those who love you, what reward is there for that?
~ Matthew 5:46 [NLT]
