I love my fiance about 50/50 for selfish and unselfish reasons (I've thought about this a lot).
On the one hand, I love how he treats me, how supportive he is of me and how well he cooks (among other things).
On the other hand, I love him for who he is--his character, his stubbornness, his level head...and even some of his ideas that I don't agree with but would support anyway (as long as they're not TOO outlandish). I love & respect him even when he is absolutely useless to me personally.
But, for the most part, we ARE "useful" to each other...companionship, mutual understanding, an attraction to someone who reminds us of ourselves, etc. We also complement each other, as each one of us has areas of strength and vulnerability. That's one of the reasons why I think we work as a long-term couple.
