Some people make a distinction between loving someone and being in love with someone. She seemed to make that distinction. When one has been with someone for 20 years, had all their ups and downs, had kids together, there is usually a degree of loyalty and a loathing to just break up because some strangers on the internet recommend it.
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
