In the Name of LOVE – The Top 5 LOVE complications


“When you love, it is not you to be understood but you to understand; not for you to take but for you to be taken; to listen not to dictate; to sacrifice and not to demand; not to count or measure but to LOVE

1.Heaven and earth relationship

“Horizon is where heaven and earth meet: A love story that crossed boundaries.” – Diana Williams

This is a relationship that is bound by age and status in life. Relationships like these had so many complications, – from oppositions to denials to criticisms to judgments from families, friends and love ones.

Example is the “Cinderella love story”.  Although Cinderella is a fairy tale story, it has still the connotation that heaven and earth can collide. It gives hope to the loveless.

Another example is when a rich guy is in love with a poor lady.  A CEO or president of a company was in love with his secretary, or a prince with his maidservant.

What is your reaction when you see couples like these? According to research, they were often judge, accusing the poor ones as gold digger. Parents of the rich guy also hinder the relationship.

2. Long distance relationship

“It is a strong emotional commitment to another who is far away and beyond physical access.” – Urban dictionary

You are in love with each other despite the distance, Love stories that are built by Word Wide Web and Social media. This requires trust, honesty, maturity and strong affection, without it, the LOVE will surely collapse.

It takes time and effort to make this relationship last forever. This is a relationship some say is doomed to fail. One factor that can affect the relationship is infidelity. I have seen lots of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) families fall apart due to unfaithfulness. I had a boyfriend when I decide to work in Hongkong for a two year-contract.

He made a promise that’s too good to be true. After 5 months of working abroad, he forgot his promises and said was in love with someone else. After that, He was nowhere to be found, and no closure whatsoever. But one thing is sure, he’s quitting the relationship.

I was hopeless and broke, I cried a lot. Many questions popped up, I don’t know why he cheated but I have to accept it. I can’t do anything after all, we were miles apart.

3. Mutual understanding (MU)

Two people who are obviously like each other, but not committed to a relationship.

It was a black and white kind of relationship. Some called it as an “assuming relationship”.  You don’t know how to put yourself in because your judgment might be wrong. It was a relationship so confusing. He never said I love you but his action speaks as if he was in love with you.

4. Best friend Forever (BFF)

You are in love with your best friend but decided to hide the feeling because you might destroy the friendship. You’re so afraid of losing him forever if the relationship doesn’t work.

“Have you ever loved someone and they had absolutely no idea whatsoever, and sat around and watched him fall for someone else”.

5. Stagnant Relationship or relationship is going circle

You are boyfriend and girlfriend for 10 years but no plan for marriage yet, either the boy is afraid of a greater responsibility or he was afraid of a marriage, he taught that marriage is putting him into jail forever!

You want to marry and have kids but you are still waiting for a proposal. You are confused on the status of your relationship.

Whatever relationship “status” you are in now, always remember 1 Corinthians 13:7, it says, “love always protects, always trust, always hopes, always persevere”.

Whatever status you are in now. I hope the above article resonates.

  1. There are lots of ways relationships can be complicated. I think a key to any relationship is communication. It can help overcome a lot of obstacles.

  2. These are some complications, that’s for sure. My husband and I had a long distance relationship for a year before we were married, and that was tough. Then we’ve been separated many times since we’ve been married thanks to the military! But communication helps!

  3. Love can definitely be complicated sometimes and it’s tough to be in relationships like this especially one that’s stagnant or having unrequited love. It’s important that you know your worth and that you know when it’s time to let go.

  4. Ha! #2 and #5 resonate with me. Me and my fiance did long distance for 2 years: one he was in Russia and one he was in Toronto when I was in Vancouver. We made it work, and are doing it again next year after we get married! Just how life works. But we have a lot of trust and love for each other, and this time we are only separated by a 5 hour plane ride!
    But #5 because it took 9 years before we got married. But it wasn’t him, I was convinced I didn’t want to get married! He finally swayed me!

  5. Love can be so complicated. This is a great reminder that sometimes you aren’t the reason the relationship didn’t work out, it was the circumstances that are to blame.

  6. I had a long distance relationship in college, and it did not go so well. Love is one of the most complicated topics I can think about. It is super complexes with twist and turns. I am happily married and I still don’t have it figured out. Thanks for sharing!

  7. This is love, beautiful & not always easy! I’m lucky to have my husband, we really have bound hearts! We speak a lot, I think this is our secret!

  8. Those are big relationship complications that can happen. I think the worst thing I experienced were the long distance ones. They always fell apart because you can’t maintain the kind of closeness you need for a relationship to grow and flourish. Which means someone needs to move and soon or it doesn’t end up working.

  9. I was on long distance relationship and it was difficult…. but now I am happy to be married and living with my hubby … 😊 👍🏼
