Question
I asked my husband if he still had feelings for his old girlfriend. He replied that he would always love her but in a caring way. Do you think this is normal or okay? It hurts me that he still cares about another woman. Thanks.

Answer
its normal as long as the love for her goes no farther than caring for her,the heart is that way,we cannot control who we love,thank God he was truthful and not hiding it from you.Its best u get over it and move on,after all he choice you.Of course he hasn't forgotten her as that wouldn't be possible or even realistic.care deeply about (not be in love.Ex is ex for a reason,you were the special one he choice to marry and wed.I would just appreciate his honesty. It will also be selfish to think about who he have lost when he still have a lot of people waiting to be loved by him.so long as he not thinking about her,long as its no strong feelings involve,its normal.is it fair? ummmmmm; good news is he decided to move on.
Who thinks it is normal to still be in love with an ex while you are in a relationship with someone else?
it I pray this helped,feel free to rate me if so,have a blessed week,peace be unto and upon u both.

However, marriage is like a signed contract for commitment. With marriage, love birds are also expected to share certain responsibilities and if they fail to do so, conflicts begin and the family life gets disturbed. This is where marriage counselor plays an important role. Marriage counselor helps the couple resolve their conflicts and saves their relationship which otherwise would have ended up in divorce. Marriage Counselor helps the couple learn their compatibility status and suggests ways for the betterment. A Marriage Counselor should be competent enough to understand the severity of the conflicts between the spouses and he/she must a good knowledge of the ways that would make the matrimonial relationship happy and smooth.I believe that God can heal broken marriages; Understanding what God says about marriage and the covenant promise you made to Him, will help you understand why God will heal your broken marriage. God joined the two of you together and brought it into fruition and said, "it is good" "So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man put asunder (separate)". When you married you were joined together (bound) for life, this is God's law.
