If all's fair, it isn't love. Emotional dependency, maybe, but not love.

That I never understood that.

Of course all is not fair in love and war. You may be faced with a choice between the 'right' thing to do and the 'sensible' thing to do if you want to win, but just because it is the sensible thing to do doesn't make it fair.

I've always disliked this saying. It's a recipe for bad news.

I am actually unsure about it. For the most part, I don't really understand the logic behind it. But sometimes I find myself in a situation where it seems to make sense. And then afterwards I forget why it made sense.
Confusion..

I can totally understand that.

It seems to me sometimes that maybe sanitizing war with rules and "acceptable" types of attacks, actually makes it far more likely to occur, and keeps it going longer. Would it be less likely if, once a party took the step of attacking, there was no telling what might befall them in return? It might make the need for proper dialogue even more obvious. We seem to have a halfway house at the moment, where it's ok to fight "a bit". Does this encourage protracted suffering?

Perhaps we should say, as a world, ok, if you've got to the stage of taking lumps out of each other, get on with it and don't cry "foul". Perhaps all should be fair in war, because it is the end of civilised behaviour. I am not convinced enough to actually advocate that though, and do really feel that it's better to do all we can to make less violence the norm through internationally agreed law.

As for love though, how can it not be fair? When unfairness comes into it, to me that means a lack of love towards one, who can be wronged, justified by selfish love for another. That can only be fair if one thinks that love between two people is more important than anything else, I would dispute that strongly.

I think perhaps the saying had a different resonance years ago, and probably isn't really helpful in todays world.

I agree, but I think that "fairness" may be defined in a singular way here.

"Fairness" in this context means that a person will do just about anything to win their love and wars.

This is more of a proverb explaining human nature.

But, wars are not fair in love, and love is not fair in wars.

Good point. Taken like that, rather than as a guide of how to act, it's quite revealing and could be helpful in avoiding conflict.
