What is Love?
“What is love?” is one of the most asked questions says Peter Perrin, course director of the Nazareth Family Institute. They runs course on marriage preparation and communication between couples and Peter says that conceptions around love can be very confusing in the modern world. Romantic feelings of desire and happiness are often mistaken for being love, whereas the love that is required for more permanent commitments such as marriage requires communication and self sacrifice. He explained that vulnerable intimacy and being able to communicate your needs as well as understand the needs of the other person are critical to the long term survival of any relationship. He explains more to Miriam Gormally.
