The real meaning of love is an unconditional presence given to another person that is nonjudgmental, open-minded, and considerate of the other’s needs. Love doesn’t grow bitter. Love is patient. Love is truly listening and giving ones heart to someone else. Whether the definition has changed is a difficult question. People can put their own spins on what real love means to them and go off of that in their relationships. The definition nowadays can be based on a variety of things and the validity of meaning can only be based on the standards one is using to measure it.

The definition of families and relationships has changed over the years but I think that the definition of love is still the same. The best definition I have found is in the Bible - Love is patient; kind; does not envy; does not boast; it is not proud; it does not dishonour others; it's not self-seeking and doesn't get angry easily; it doesn't keep a grudge-list; it is happy with good, and when good things happen to others; it protects; trusts; hopes, perseveres; and love never fails.
