Lust is the never-ending desire to have sex or be physical with your partner. And love is the feeling or emotion to just feel cared and protected in every situation. When we talk about how both these characteristics operate in a relationship, some people become insecure or protective to talk about it. However, is it still healthy to have lust and love both in a relationship? This question still confuses many of the couples as it still remains unclear how it affects your relationship.   

If there is pure love in a relationship, there is no way that anything, not even lust can come in between the bond you share with each other. In fact, since lust is nothing more than the desire to be physical, it is very much healthy since the love between two people already exists. It is very much common or it is the basic principle to be physical in a relationship. The problem occurs when the couples or one of the partners tries to stay in the relationship, just to fulfil his/her sexual needs. This act is nothing pure lust and no love.  

When you take away love from a relationship and make it all about just sex, the meaning of being in a relationship is already lost since love is the first pillar of a healthy relationship. If you want to be in a relationship just to get physical, never try a serious relationship. Try to be in a causal relationship where emotions and feelings have no place. That way the if your partner is looking for a serious relationship you can end it right before it gets strong and unbreakable. The longer you drag an unhealthy relationship, the harder it is to break up. To conclude, lust is fine in a serious relationship as long as it makes you and your partner feel sexually important and important in a relationship. It makes them feel that you are still attracted to them and need them. But when you fail to give love at the same time, you lose the essence of being in a relationship and it only hurts your partner and makes them feel used.
