One of the most challenging circumstances that couples face is their inability to define and understand what love is.

It is not uncommon to struggle with distinguishing lust from love.

Comprehending the essence and function of love can help you determine if you should enter or remain in a relationship, as well as help you determine if your relationship is built on and sustained on a solid foundation.

Here are six ways to distinguish between love and lust:

  • Love enables you to appreciate your significant other’s mind. Lust on the other hand, enables you to appreciate your significant other’s body alone.

  • Love makes you turn to your significant other when trouble is present in your relationship. Lust makes you turn away from your significant other when trouble is present in your relationship.

  • Love makes you come home and hold your significant other. Lust on the other hand, makes you stay away from home and hold someone else’s significant other.

  • Love contributes to faithfulness and understanding. Lust on the other hand, contributes to infidelity and conflict.

  • Love enables you to validate, respect and honour your significant other’s emotions. Lust contributes to invalidation, disrespect and dishonour.

So, which do you have right now? Love or lust?
