When I married I naturally wanted to have a good relationship with my husband's parents. I did care for them, but I couldn't honestly say that it was a constant love. Things seemed to become strained between us so easily, and there were frequent misunderstandings. They were very possessive of their son and often treated both of us as if we were still children. At times they seemed to demand attention, especially from their son, and I found myself feeling like a fifth wheel. I supposed this was just the way in-laws behaved. But as a result I could feel only a kind of lukewarm love for them.
Of course, from the standpoint of trying to live as a Christian, there really isn't such a thing as lukewarm love. If we are really praying each day to love God first, and our neighbor as ourselves, there won't be a love that wavers. If we are trying to be Christlike, whatever inhibits love will eventually be exposed.
