    I think that can definitely happen.  It can also shift - while one's love wanes, the other's waxes.   And then it shifts back again and again.  If the couple is lucky & smart, they can recognize those tidal shifts for what they are and ride them out.

    Yes.

    But I also think it is more common to see people loving each other differently. Not more or less.

    Dh and i were discussing this last night and i was just curious.

    Never mind, I just saw you had the 'differently' thing as an option in the other thread.

    I think people in relationships show their love and affection in different ways, and sometimes it can feel like one isn't as loved as one loves.

    It took me a while to adjust to J's way of showing love as opposed to saying it a gazillion times. Neither is wrong, but one is him, one isn't. I'm not any less loved and I don't feel like it.

    I do think that there are relationships where one person is much more a giver than the other.

    I also think that theres no way to really guage an amount of how much someone loves another, so theres really no REAL answer.

    Very true, Nebb. I think you can only go by what you feel from the person, you know?

    I guess though that just falls under the different category. I always say and show how I love, but my husband is very quiet about it and will wait until an event to put his feelings down on paper and express how much he loves. Its just different.

    i guess have always thought that there everyone loves in a different way, not necessary quantitatively. dh i am pretty sure thinks that you can measure it though not sure how...

    I know my relationship now is different then any in my past. I think it's quite equal this time around. Where in others I have defiantly loved them more then they loved me.

    I think it's different for eveyone.

    I think about how I felt in my first marriage and how differently I feel with John, and the difference is night and day, even though the ex said I love you all the time. His actions said otherwise. John's the exact opposite (sounds a bit like yours, Nebb, except he doesn't write it), but I feel the love in the things he does and how he treats me.
    I'm more likely to kiss him in public or say I love you, which embarrasses this shy boy.

    I agree it depends on the relationship but is most definitely possible.
    I was just in that type of relationship. I feel and think that I loved him way more then he loved me.. (I still love him).
