What’s More Important – Love or Happiness?
I just started listening to you guys for about a month now and I really enjoy your show.
I wanted to know as a couple and as an individual, what is more important to you, love or happiness? Some people choose happiness over love. While some people choose love over happiness.
Would you stay with someone who you love but you are not happy with that person?
I am really looking forward to both of your response.
I wrote back and asked:
Before I answer this, when you say “would you stay with someone,” are you talking about someone you’re dating or someone you married in a the Church (i.e., a Sacramental marriage)?
She wrote back:
It could be someone you’re dating or someone you are married in a Church.
Simple answer – Would I stay with someone I loved but wasn’t happy with? In the Sacrament of Marriage, absolutely. If I wasn’t married, but just dating? Absolutely not.
Dating is not a commitment or a vow. And if the goal of dating is to get married, and the person you’re with makes you unhappy, I’d recommend getting out of that one.
How would you answer this?
