This video struck a sore spot for me-this is my biggest problem...I'm of the dating age. I have so much trouble not seeing guys through rose colored glasses, and I end up getting attached or I guess infatuated with guys who just aren't for me! I just know that this will help me once I'm married, like you said...but I just find it so hard to do it now. I'm melamed zchus too much, and make excuses for everyone -even the guys I meet and date (and it's getting me into trouble). I wish I could just turn my switch on and off. I guess I need to look at it as more of a decision, like you said. Use my mind and decide to love someone, not become infatuated with them and then think I'm in love...I hope I can. Thanks for your wisdom.

20+ years of marriage proves it true
After we got married, my husband and i did actually put on those rose-colored glasses. We agreed that BY DEFINITION, the most beautiful/wonderful person of the opposite sex was the spouse. This attitude caused some people to roll their eyes when we were young, but as we get older it's interesting to note that even more people actually openly approve of and understand our loyalty to each other. Especially when we get into tough disagreements, those rose-colored glasses help bring back the warm feelings needed to see storms through.

Thank you for the good advice
After starting a bit of an argument with my husband this morning, Lori's advice really hits home and was just what I needed to hear to get back on track. Thanks for the rose-colored reminder!

You've made a difference in my life
Lori,Your messages are very powerful, and sensitively conveyed. Last week's Shabbat presentation is still on my mind (sweater story), and I want you to know your words are very appreciated.

I dont agree fully
For the comment Lori made about falling out of love with ones spouse if ofcourse possible because people change as time goes on. Also, since Judiasm does allow divorce the concept of "falling out of love" must exist, because the two parters' love is not how it used to be or perhaps was never there. In other words, love is much more complicated then that. I have fallen in love before, with my first love. And I believe I will never love anyone again with the purity and self sacrifice that I did with my first love. Yes, it is wise to choose our partners wisely and fall in love with someone who makes sense for you but once you fall in love, you may never fall out of love with that person.

Excellent advice generally speaking... but hard to follow if the spouse is abusive. At that point it is wiser to take off the rosy glasses and seek help...

Informative, actual, realistic, useful, insightful, excellent

...but MY husband IS perfect...I still haven't found any faults...not after 25 years...;)...of course, why spend any time looking for any?

Uplifting and inspirational. Thank you.

An articulate explanation of the Jewish view of love. Every Jewish teenager should be taught this early on. It's no surprise that,in contrast to the general population, where the divorce rate is over 50%, the divorce rate of Torah-observant Jews is only 2%. Lori: I think you now have the subject for your next book! Kol hakavod. R.

why the divorce?
If love is only focusing on one's spouse's good points, why is there so much divorce? You make an excellent point-you fall in love, you fall out of love as well.
