7.5.1 -- If you love someone, you can make it work. It is entirely possible to love someone and not be able to make a relationship work with them.

Too many people stay in relationships that erode their peace of mind or their mental health or financial stability because they "love" that person that's making them miserable.

I know a woman who is married to a gambling addict. Hard, hard living in that house. But they have kids together. And she "loves" him. Not that you'd know by the screaming that goes on under that roof. Love alone isn't enough.
