Many couples claim to be deeply in love, marry, divorce and wind up hating each other.  Love often turns into hate but when have you seen hate turn into love?  Hitler killed millions out of a hatred and suspicion of the Jewish people and Mother Theresa was known for her love and charity.  Which of these had the greater impact on history?  Which is it?  Is love stronger than hate or is it the reverse?

Hate is stronger and more sensitive.  People, when they hate someone, don't judge the positive aspects of their relationship with someone, for example: My friend and his girlfriend have been going out for 6 months.  One day, they get in a fight because my friend wanted to stay in Wal Mart but his girlfriend didn't, and the next day they broke up.  Hate can destroy many things, but love can always patch it up.

Love is stronger, but hate is easier to feel. Everyone has the ability to hate, it takes a strong will to rid yourself of that emotion. Love, on the other hand, is confusing and sometimes complicated to the point of being seemingly intangible. Since hate is so easy to understand, and love so hard, love is clearly the strongest.

Hate will always be hate. It is raw, destructive. But it is not primary, and hate can be controlled.

Love cannot be controlled or pushed aside. It consumes you, changes you. It can be obsessive, it can be good and bad. Love can become hate too.

i'd say they're pretty much equel, since theyre the complete oposite of each other, but naturaly hate is easier to feal, understand and in practice is more destructive (its always easier to destroy\hate than to create\love), it doesnt mean its stronger but hate can do more (bad) than love
(do good).

jay> hard doesnt mean strong

This is a good question and one i have thought about often, I believe that both love and hate are as strong as each other, but Love is above hate, so that makes it a winner in many respects. I believe love will always be the end winner as a whole, as in good always wins over evil in the end. Love is obviously a lot more pleasant to feel, so over all people would rather choose love over hate, even though its easier to hate than it is to love. Because love feels better than hate. It kind of makes you wonder why so much evil happens in the world and why so much war happens as love is a nice feeling hate is horrific. Hate is like a self inflicted curse, love is like a self inflicted blessing, so love gets my vote, but only just. They say hate does more damage, but love does the more healing. Hate can be controlled, love cant, so maybe love is stronger. I think there are diffrent kinds of love, and some of them just cant be broken... I am in love with my girl friend, and i have never felt hate that is more powerful than that.

All the best

love and hate are just labels of ranges on a scale of relationship (relationship of any two things - not just couples) defined by a dualistic thought process.

love and hate are thus equally weak and equally strong.  for what burnside said: love is also raw and destructive and not primary and can be controlled.  hate as well can become uncontrolled and obsessive.  

any relationship is a a defined by its trust levels.  building trust is like building a reputation - it takes some time to build up, but can be easily destroyed.  in that sense small acts of distrust become mistaken for hatred when they are not.  hatred as well has to be built up to be powerful (which may lead to hateful acts, just as built up love can lead to loving acts).

strip away the artificial and love and hate are seen to be the same thing.

You have no idea what he just said did you?

Didn't think so.

Hate wins, it is something that is ultimate. It changes your entire body and life sometimes. Hate can stay with a person forever. But I think the strongest human feeling is GUILT! IT JUST HAS TO BE GUILT!

Again, we often see love change into hate but who has seen hate turn into love?
