So posited a visitor to my Formspring wall a while back. Here’s my answer, tidied up a little:
That would depend on how you define “love”.
If you mean, in terms of physical attraction or appeal – then yes, of course. We all see and meet people all the time that we find attractive, beautiful, engaging, funny etc. Sometimes, when/if we get to know them, our feelings change though. Beware of this type of “love.”
If, however you mean, love in terms of an abiding unconditional commitment, then that is far less likely. More often than not, the person you fall in love with and marry will be someone you get to know over time and as your relationship matures and intensifies, you will realise that you love them. By that, I don’t mean, you will want to have sex with them, although, as a married couple that’s usually part of the relationship
I mean that you will have an undying, unconditional commitment to serve them, care for them, and give yourself to them. Kind of like Jesus had for the Church…
