God is love. God is not seperate from love. Love is seperate from sex. God puts no restrictions on love. You may love anyone, everyone, all the time. God does put restrictions on sex. You may only have sex with a person of the opposite sex who is your spouse. Period. Claiming love does not purchase an excuse. God defines the difference between love and lust. He created the universe, that gives Him the sole right to define its parameters both in the physical and spiritual realm. A covenant is a binding spiritual agreement. God never breaks covenant.
