Maha Monday Column + Video: What is ‘love’ and how do we lose it?

At The Chai Diaries, a man’s wife tells him she doesn’t “love [him] anymore” – confused, lonely, and worried about their children, he reaches out and asks what (if anything) can be done.

“…please remember that there is grace to be exercised in every moment of our lives, and though that grace is easily found when the situation is a happy one, it is more difficult, though far more necessary in times when we do *not* receive that which we believe we want / need. As a daughter of divorce, let me make this very clear: This grace, and how you exercise it, it is what your children will remember about this time in yours and your wife’s relationship. These are the moments which – in your children’s eyes – become your character-defining qualities.”

In the video, I look at what it might actually mean when someone says they don’t love you anymore, and dig into how it is that love can be lost.
