Can Love Really be Blind?

People like to believe that love is a powerful force that makes us incapable of seeing the flaws of others. This concept can be found in Shakespearian plays, and probably goes back to the Roman times of Romance. I mean even the bible has a verse about love keeping no records of wrong. Humans love the concept…..but are they right in thinking that?

Is it beneficial to hold the people we love, even if they happen to be bad people without our best interest in mind, in positive light. You know in such high regard that it is almost fantasy or illusion?

I know that as relationships go on the “honeymoon” period dissipates, but does that mean that the love is no longer as strong because you are seeing “he who did no wrong” for what he actually is? Is the end of the “honeymoon” period that point when reality sets in of who you are in a relationship with? Is it that turning point where we either hit the road packing because we can’t deal or find acceptance in the other person strap down for the long haul…..

I mean I guess what it comes down to is that no one is perfect, we all have flaws and true love in a healthy relationship is a matter of accepting those “habits” or finding someone who accepts your habits.

What do you think, can love really be blind? If so….for how long?
