Scenario #1:
Clarence and Betty are what we know as the perfect happy married couple, they been together for 25 years. The couple has four children which they love and adore, unfortunately for the couple their relationship is starting to have complications. Between all of the stress at home bills, children, and work it leaves very little time for passion and intimacy even though the couple is completely devoted to one another. This lack of intimacy and passion is leading this happy couple to the verge of giving up if something does not change. The couple feels that is would devastate their children if they do not provide good guidance for their children, so they suffer actually unhappy with one another acting as if everything was perfectly fine. Their love relationship in their marriage is slowly drowning and becoming lifeless they are facing an empty love. They are losing everything that fulfilled their marriage with joy, happiness, and compassion, and it is being replaced with guilt, misery, and depression.

Scenario #2:
Mikey and Dino have been best brothers/friends since birth, they do everything together. They are kind, caring, and extremely protective of one another. Their intimate bond with one another is one of a kind, and no one else they know share ones as deeply as they do. The bond they share is a close friendship, and there is no physical or sexually attraction between the two brothers. The two brother do love and care for one another though and worry about the woman that the develop feeling for. They are best friends and only want to see the best for each other, and they do not want their bond to be shredded apart.

Comparing the two scenarios
Close and empty love are similar because of the bond each person is has for one another. In both of the loves the people are devoted to each other, care deeply for one another, but are not passionate. There is no sexual attraction between the two people, but they would bend over backwards to help
