You fell in love, but what happens when you fall out of love? It’s not that unheard of as we think or could it be we just don’t want to face the facts. Being in love, it seems forever, this person you sleep, breathe, and wake up with thoughts only about them. Most times you can’t even imagine life without your spouse. The feeling is mutual; his smell lingers on your pillow and you hold it all day until he comes right back to his spot. You even watch him use the bathroom in complete awe, “That’s my man”.
About 5 years later, the topic of marriage is all that’s being spoken about these days. At one point that would be the exact perfect ending to your fairytale relationship, instead reality has hit. The person you once thought you wanted to spend the rest of your life with is the last person you even want to see these days. Suddenly that thing he does to clear his throat, sounds like all the patients at your grandfather’s nursing home. The same smell good pillow now reeks of stale hair gel that is actually yours and even that annoys you because the lid is never put back on!

Are you falling out of love? This person you once thought was literally an angel from heaven is seemingly a demon now. A stranger in your bed, or is it? Most times in relationships all the characteristics of people do exist. What happens is we are blinded by love that the little things don’t matter in the beginning; the presence of this person overrules the truth. It’s a sad reality, people are sometimes desperate for the feeling of a relationship, and standards are thrown out the window because you think “well it’s not that bad he smokes and I have asthma, I’ll just go in the other room”. Why do we find ourselves in these awkward and unhappy predicaments? Is it really true love? Or what we thought was love now we have fallen out and fallen harder than in?
