    As long as the people engaged in the relations acknowledge the degree of trust between the ones involved.

    Expect nothing more or nothing less.

    "deep beneath the winter snow / lies a seed, that with the sun's love / in the spring, becomes the rose." Lyrics from The Rose (sung by Bette Midler, among others). Love can survive without trust, but it cannot blossom. My wife and I are in our 26th year of marriage. Early on, trust failed, and frustration overwhelmed respect and outward signs of love. Working together for over a decade, we have cultivated the buried seed to create a new blossom, a whole garden, a whole new life. And focusing on respect, on being trustworthy, and on learning to re-open trust was the light of the sun that we shone on the seed of our love.

      Wow I'm so impressed, thank you SidKemp for your answer/comment!smile You expressed the meaning of love and trust in just a few words so good that it's kind of an example to me of what am I looking for.

    I believe there can be love without trust but most of the time people get quite annoyed at the other person and causes strains of the relationship.  In lots of families there's much love without trust.  It definitely depends on the person as to how long they are willing to put up with it.

      I agree love is blind. Common sense and your intuition isn't.

    TRUE Love can over come anything.

    Remember....
    Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails...But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.

    1 Corinthians 13:4-7,13

    If you don't trust the person how can you love them? Trust is what leads you to love the person in the first place. You trust them with the most value parts of your which is your heart. If they violate your trust, yeah, you may love them, but not in the sense you once did. When you begin to doubt a person, that lead's to jealous rants and that means insecurity exist. No one can make you feel secure, and if you don't trust, there is insecurity within the relationship.

      Love is also blind.  You can't choose who you love if the love is real.  You can choose you have a relationship with though and if when you are building that relationship you don't trust them you can choose to not be with them.

      Love is not blind. People chose not see. I have experienced this. Lust may not be a choice, but love is.

    Yes, still it will exist. However a complete trust is needed so that true love will be nourished or bloomed.

    Yes true love can still exist without trust. I have faced it myself; I kept loving someone for 24 long years in spite of the fact that neither of us trusted each other.

      That's not true love. You can't have love without trust in a marriage. My husband and I have 32 years together. Everything grows over time. With out trust and respect. I couldn't love him the way I do.
