    Love has consistently be defined as a strong emotional connection where one cares very deeply for another. Oftentimes they are willing to make major sacrifices to ensure their happiness.
    The word affair has gone through some transitions. At times it could mean two people had a short but passionate time together.
    In olden days when it was said "They had a love affair years ago" it simply meant it was not a (long-term relationship). You'll find this oftentimes in many older novels usually involving a vacation one had.
    However today the word affair usually evokes cheating or infidelity as definitions. In other words one or both people involved are also married or in relationships with others. This is sometimes referred to as an "illicit affair". This implies the word affair on it's own is not bad.
    People have been known to "fall in love" with someone they're cheating with and have left their mates to marry them.
    Overall love is an emotion and an affair is a (relationship status).

      Nice answer, However affair could be beginning stage to fall in love and it can be converted in marriage. We have heard, “After an affair of two they  got married” Here the negativity of affair converted into positivity of life.

      You said "affair could be beginning stage to fall in love and it can be converted in marriage" I think we're both saying the same thing both the "affair" and "marriage" refers to their (relationship status). Love is an (emotion) or "feeling".

    If you are truly in love; then you will not find it necessary to have an affair. Love is when one loves someone else more than they love themselves.

      Of course ; love is natural while affair can be artificial. However if love exist for a long time; it can be converted in love. Love and affair can also move parallel

      Affairs can also break up homes. And with a divorce rate of 50% in this country there is no need for adultery.
