    I think love is important in life whether we realise it or not. Everyone loves something or somebody. Family or friends or even the family pet. However, if you are talking about relationships only, then I would say it is very important but we do not get to choose as and when we love.

    It is something that comes from the heart and we have no control over it. Therefore while love is important, sometimes we have to make the decision to get on with life without it.

    Life and Love are inseparable. When you begin to loose love you lean on life, and when you begin to loose life you lean on love.

    we need fresh air, oxygen to breathe
    these should be our greatest and deepest need,
    however, to love yourselves shouldn't be a task
    and never accepted the consulation price,

    Have you ever visit an orphanage, and see the babies in their
    crib, no one to love them  or even one hour of being held to be fed, because of the condition of the place
    however, someone might still say, their life is worth fighting for....

    My world would cease to revolve in it's orbit without love on it smile
    life without love would be hell, really .. . even Sigmund Freud believes that we indeed need and crave for love

    According to the Bible, if you don't have love, you have nothing.

    Life without love is possible, but it's an empty existence. A person is breathing; therefore, he is alive. However, when love is involved the person is ALIVE!

    I don't think so. There are all kinds of love. We need love in our life because I think it is part of our human DNA. The type of love is not the issue. As long as something motivates us to go to the next level or we get a reward from someone or something that no other person or thing can give us. Love is like a spark plug. It makes us move forward.

    Life without love is empty existence like the rock, it exist but it does not live. It can only wait until it no longer exist.

    these are all fantastic answers. I believe that life is worth living without love but it would be an empty life indeed.

    If you are talking about a relationship without love, then get out of that relationship.. it will kill you emotionally.  It is not healthy.  You are better off alone than stay in a relationship without love.  Will your life be worth living if you are alone?  Yes, you have yourself. If you love yourself, then you can survive.  My husband of 26 years passed away a few years ago.  I felt dead myself.  He was my love my all.  I might as well been dead because that's how I felt.. dead.  But I chose to live because my kids needed me.  Yes, life is worth living even if you are alone, but you have to have a purpose in life.  But first things first.. love thyself.  It's the first step in realizing life is worth living.  I hope this helps a little.

    Love is important because without it life has no meaning or purpose. As Frank Tebbets says "A life without love in it is like a heap of ashes upon a deserted hearth, with the fire dead, the laughter stilled and the light extinguished." Love allows us to be more and do more than we could ever accomplish without its power.

    What a curious question. At what point in our life do we decide that life should not be worth living? After losing someone, or a disappointment or loss of some kind? A break up?

    Love is important to us all. We should not decide to just give up. Think of what we could be missing...

    There is family, friends and friendships. There is random chance that things may change for whatever reason without us controlling it. There is hope. smile
