Can Love be for more than just The One?

Can we love more than one person?
I am “in love”, but sometimes I wonder if my life had taken a different turn & I hadn’t met my current boyfriend & fallen in love, would I have had another opportunity?

With the types of shows on TV about polygamy & usually it’s men who are in a polygamist relationship, but is it possible to be in love with more than one person in one’s life.

I know finding someone other than your partner attractive is possible, but that is a natural occurrence as there are many good-looking people in the world. Love is deeper than that.

This month (February) is pretty much dedicated to love. We have a dedicated day to let people know how we feel, but you can love your family, friends & then the love changes, & includes you partner, regardless of whether you are heterosexual, homosexual or transsexual, whatever your preference.

In Biblical terms there are four types of Love:

Agape — unconditional love, God for mankind
Philia — brotherly love, or love that exists between close friends.
Storge — Love that grows between family members.
(Only these three are mentioned in the Bible Eros has no mention at all.)
Eros; A special intimate love between just two people for life; not to be shared or thrown about as is the trend today.

The fact that Eros Love isn’t in the bible says that this pressure that Christians put on themselves to be married, could possible be forcing themselves into a marriage that wasn’t going to last.
When you find the person that Eros is aimed at, nothing can possibly come between you & you wouldn’t want to let anything jeopardise that.

Despite these explanations of love, it just shows that love can be spread between many.
Not that i’m saying this is an answer to the question, but it shows that there are many levels that can be created from the word love.

Love is much more complex an emotion, feeling and action than we will ever truly show to one another.
We seem to only ever express one or two of these terms of love in our entire life. So in terms of the four types of love mentioned before, YES we can love more than one person! 😉
