    Interesting point about not respecting the behavior. (Tea and toast? I will have to try that. If I understand the spirit of the phrase, I offer beer and brisket as an equivalent phrase.)

    It is possible to have respect for people you don't care for. I am not convinced that respect automatically follows love, or the other way around. However,, both appear to be present in marriages and friendships that last a long time.

    I agree respect and love go hand in hand in relationships. It's not likely someone would be "in love" with someone they did not respect! However it is possible to respect someone and not be "in love" with them! :-)

    Yes, as soon as the love is gone...the respect goes right along with it. That's why I said they go "hand-in-hand" in my comment...for good or bad.
