Is love an an emotion or is it an action? I think that love is more than just an emotion. The fact that you can choose to love makes it more than an emotion. Like for example laughing is a form of happiness but you can choose whether or not you want to do it. Some things make you laugh harder than others, and some make you want to laugh but you choose not to. Just like in relationships, some people you choose to love and some you love more than others. If laughing is the verb of happiness. What is the emotion for love?
