I opened Twitter two days ago and was immediately drawn to a quote tweet that said, ‘What if he KNOWS that he needs both?’. This was in response to someone who had tweeted something like, and I am paraphrasing here, ‘A real man who knows what he wants will not date a second woman while in a relationship with another’.
It was the question that caught my attention – ‘what if he KNOWS that he needs both?’. The replies to this question were interesting. They seemed to suggest that it is possible to fully commit to two different relationships. My own reply, which never got tweeted, was “various shades of love’. My mind was full of questions which I would like to share here.
Do parents love their children equally? Is it possible?
Sibling love. Do you love your siblings the same way?
Juggling between your spouse/partner and side dish? What is the difference between that love for a spouse and that of a side dish? Is it possible to love them exactly the same way?
What is your take on any of these questions above? If your answer starts with ‘it depends,’ explain what it depends on.
Given a second chance, which love would you repeat? Which one would you avoid? State your reasons.
