Does unconditional love exist?

When asked “Does unconditional love exist?”, people had different opinion. Some found this unconditional love in their wife, some in their parents. Here are some personal opinion and experiences that people shared in reply to this question on Quora.

 1.Kandarp Joshi says:

I entered my house at 6pm. She was back from her job at 5.30pm. As, I entered my house she offered me water. After that she made tea for me. Then she cooked food and we had our dinner at 8pm.

While sleeping she said “thanks for being there for me”. The next question was “what would you like to have for breakfast tomorrow.”

I try to help her but she doesn’t like it. I ask her to bring restaurant food sometimes when she is tired but she insists on having home cooked food as, I have my lunch in restaurants regularly.

She is earning well. She is smart, self reliable. She doesn’t need me at all for living her life. Even if tomorrow I am not with her she can live a lavish life. Then why does she stays with me and takes care of even smallest thing of mine?

2.Sudarshan Rajagopalan says:

Yes, Unconditional love exists. I have one, I can feel it.

Your friends will say “Best Friends Forever” and move on when they meet new people.

Your boyfriend/girlfriend will say “We are made for each other” and will break it off because they found someone better than you to go out with.

But, your mom/dad will text you “Eat well. Don’t stay awake too late in the night. Take care of your health” even when you haven’t texted/spoken to them in a month.

That, my friend, is what you call Unconditional Love which only your immediate family – Mom, Dad and Siblings, is capable of.

3.Anusha Mohit Kamat who is working in IT sector believes that Unconditional love is a myth. According to her love without expecting anything in return is the definition for unconditional love. She says:

Friends: We meet a lot of people everyday. We make friends, we love them, take care of them and we move on. We also live together in hostels and PGs, share good moments, study together help each other in studies etc but we cannot love them UNCONDITIONALLY. We always expect something in back.

Best Friends: Childhood friends stay in our hearts forever. No matter how far we go from each other, the memories of the childhood spent together are too precious to forget. Irrespective of what we become in the future, we always see our BEST FRIENDS as treated them in our childhood. But there are some conditions to follow. We do expect them to like us the way we like them.

Spouse: The most conditional love in the history of mankind.

  • We expect them to love us. There! first condition.[we can’t love without getting it back]
  • We expect them to treat us as their friend.
  • We expect their families to like us since we are bound.
  • We expect gifts, as we have given them.
  • Expectations related to acceptance of our self is always there.
  • We expect them to understand our dreams, passion and nature.

The list is endless.

Well, everyone can have a different opinion regarding unconditional love. Whatever be its form, it is the love that has bound us together.
