"Love is patient.
Love is kind.
It does not envy
It does not boast
It is not proud
It is not rude
It is not self-seeking
it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres"

"Love" at first sight is impossible. That's not love, because "Love at first sight" is all about me.

When people conduct affairs behind each other's back because they "really love the person they're with", that's not love. Because love doesn't delight in evil. Love rejoices with the truth. True love isn't built on lies and deception.

When spouses are abusive and jealous, that's can't be love, because love is not proud or easily angered.
