Is unconditional love cheesy or achievable? Callers reflect

Should love be unconditional or is that pure foolishness?

Presenter Eusebius Mckaiser gets philosophical on Valentine's Day and asks listeners for their thoughts.

We've been married for nearly 65 years... My love endures, I have the memories. We've been together since the ages of 16 and 19 and he's turning 90 in May. I still love him and I know he loves me.

Eve, caller

If it's not unconditional, it cannot be love. Maybe I just idealise it a lot.

Thato, caller

There's no such thing as unconditional love, honestly.

Mzwandile, caller

It's how we look at what love is. I believe that you can love unconditionally. But the relationships we have, when we love someone - that has its conditions.

Karien, caller

Love in its very definition has to be unconditional.

Andy, caller
