Loveless Marriage

What would you do if you are stuck in a loveless marriage? We might like to think that all marriages should have a strong love foundation but the reality is many of us actually stay in a loveless marriage due to a variety of reasons.

In a simple online poll by UK’s Daily Mail, I saw that 22% of respondents actually answered “No” when asked ‘Do you love your spouse?’ If that is indeed the case, then it certainly seems that many people out there are stuck in a loveless union. I guess the main reason for many to stay married is because of the kids apart from the fact that inertia tend to pull people to remain with the familiar than making a drastic change to their lives.

However, I think a marriage that does not have strong romantic love may not necessarily be a failure as long as there is respect and both partners are aware of their duties and responsibilities. In a way, that is how many marriages in the past survived. And even today, not everyone who gets married are heads over heels in love with their partner on their wedding day.

A loveless marriage may not be emotionally fulfilling but for those marriages which have no abusive elements in them, I have also witnessed how some of these people plod along with no signs of giving up. I guess at the end of the day happiness needs to come from within and whether you feel “trapped” in a loveless marriage or not depends very much on perspective and how you view life.

If you have high expectations of marriage and sees it as one long romantic story, then a loveless marriage may cause much unhappiness. But if you accept the fact that marriage is only a partnership in which both of you do your best for the next generation, then a loveless marriage may not be such a big deal. In fact, I have one ex-colleague who told me that her marriage is based on respect rather than love and that is enough to keep it going.

Therefore, I tend to subscribe to the view that a loveless marriage may not necesssarily be an unhappy one that compels a divorce. There are certainly more feelings than just romantic love for two people to stay together throughout their lives.

Holding car wash signs in a bikini is one thing. Getting guys off in the back room of a strip club is a little different. No?
I’m not saying that’s exactly what Jack’s gf was doing, but the potential was there.
Jack’s stress is based on what he and many men know about what happens in some real life strip clubs. Not what happens in silly movies.

And he knows this because he goes there? If he didn’t go, there wouldn’t be a market for it. So he’s too good to date a woman who works there, he will just throw his hard-earned money at her. That’s not silly at all.
