In this episode, we begin one of several in a series on what is marital and family love? These first few will focus on what is marital love. We begin by recalling Peter and Cheryl, the couple we looked at in the episodes about romantic love. Peter and Cheryl have worked through there problems, and now they desire to stay together indefinitely. Are they ready for marriage? I suggest a definition of marital love to help answer the question Peter and Cheryl are facing about should they get married. In my definition I suggest that companionship is the heart of marital love.
How can a couple reach the point of being ready for marriage? This is the question we will take up in the next episode.
This podcast series is based on my book The Six Faces of Love which can be viewed at craigowen.net
