Class this week has been about love. I thought it was interesting to learn that English is one of the only languages that only has one word to describe "Love". In Greek there are 4 different words to describe 4 different types of love. Eros- Romantic, sexual. Agape- "Christian". Storge- parent-child. Philia- Brotherly, friendship. So which one is real love? All of them are. When I was just getting married, my wise aunt told me that true love isn't solely based upon the Eros type of love because the romance and sexual aspect of a relationship will eventually fade and be put on the back burner. It is so important for us to have a strong friendship with your spouse because that is where all of the four types of love originate.
