    What is the most intense thing you would do in the name of Love.  The kind of thing that makes you go...Damn, I can't believe I just did that!  You can say what you would do as well as have done.  As for me I have actually allowed someone to get away with murder, many times over, (that is something I never do and will never allow anyone to do again) and as for something I would do---I would actually give away a prized possession.

      sit up all night by your child's bedside when he is sick, watching every breath he takes

      driving to the ER at 2 am with an hour of sleep

      letting your toddler projectile vomit all over you and not scold him

      etc etc

      basically putting your child first is what i have done/do in the name of love. nobody else on the planet deserves that kind of unconditional love except your child. however, i would never do anything immoral in the name of love, nor condone or champion anyone else doing something immoral either.

        I have to disagree with you on this one cosette, I would hope that instinctively and naturally anyone who bears a child would behave this way.   It is your duty to......unfortunately there are many people who bring children into this world and walk around as though they did their children a favor by "producing" them.   Very ignorant, very brain dead behavior.  They are not responsible for their welfare, neither their upbringing and basically doom their children before they have a chance to see and experience life in a better light!  The great thing about Loving another person outside of family this way is that you are able to experience a growth in yourself that is magical, sort of like a transformation.   To Love unconditionally has so much power behind it and when you can get the same love back, it makes it all the better.  It doesn't always work out this way, but at least you experienced something other never do in their life time.  Alot of people "Luv" so that they in return can receive "Luv"  it doesn't work out this way---

      Put everything on hold, jump in my car, travel hundreds of miles at a high rate of speed, risking life and limb, just to spend an hour holding her hand and seeing her smile.

    I would give freely and trust completely. I would not allow anyone to be abusive-physically or mentally.

      Yes.....I've been there, even though it is an amazing feeling, you have to be very careful who you are so trusting with.  The rewards of giving unconditionally (without ulterior motives or demanding anything in return) is truly amazing.  As I was giving---I in return received so much from so many, and these people were absolute strangers.

      Love has balance, if it isn't complete then it is for you to leave!

    When my ex-husband said that he wasn't happy anymore, I literally "beg" for 2 months I would cry and stayed awake at 4am waiting until he gets home (from his mistress) and for him to realized that I would not give him up. That for me was really stupidity and such foolish thing to do,and until now I couldn't believe that I did it anyway.

      We all realize the "mistakes" we've made after the fact.  Just write it off never to do it again Sometimes you gotta play third person...step out of the situation and dissect it to see it for what it really is.
