Me- Have you ever been in love before?

Friend- Yes

Me- Have you ever been in love after?

Friend- Yes

Me- Did your love for your second diminish your love for your first?

Friend- Yes

Me- Then you have never been in love before.

I'm not sure, Sean.

I don't know if a second love diminishes the first. It seems to me that perhaps in both cases the intensity of romantic love can be the same, even though they arise from different romantic contexts, and from different levels of experience in one's life. Maybe those are the reasons the intensity can be the same.

I'm personally not involved in an open marriage, but was trying to make a case for it with this. I think you might have missed the point I was trying to go for and that is true love can never be diminished by falling in love with another. I don't know. I may have missed the boat with this one.
