I love and agree with what Mrs. Palatnik says about love and respect. My question is there scripture that speaks on this subject?

Honestly, one cannot exist without the other. I could not love someone who did not respect me. Conversely, I could not love someone whom I did not respect. A previous commenter mentioned that love without respect is merely lust. I agree with THAT sentiment 100%.

This time you ar not right, Lori

Real love includes respect also.
Love is as important to a man as it is to a woman.
And a man as well as a woman Needs to be respected.
A woman is not a child. For a child it is importaant that it
is loved. The woman, like the man, needs to be respected
also.There is a beautiful word that includes both sides.
Of course, this is a generalization too. There my well be other cases. -
