Teen love can persevere

Dear editor,

Taylor Warner’s April 14 article on obligatory feelings and love has no place in my life. Claiming that feelings of infatuation must be returned by obligation is not true.

I believe love is a choice, not a feeling as it has come to be known. Infatuation is the fun, care free feeling, but love is a decision by both members of the relationship to: devote themselves to, care for, and provide for the other person.

I have chosen to love my girlfriend. In no way do I feel I am obligated to love her. I am proud to love her and I feel privileged to know she loves me back.

I have been taught that I must persevere. I must make a decision, stick with it, and don’t relent. The Bible teaches us to persevere; this is one reason divorce is wrong. When the feeling of infatuation dissolves, as it always does, I will still be in love.

For high school students, school, work, and other responsibilities are obligatory. Love is chosen and preserved by those who are able to understand its power.
