You say that to forgive is to offer “moral love” to another person.  What exactly is moral love?  I don’t think I can reach that high with my partner at this point.

Moral love, or agape in the ancient Greek, is a deliberate caring for another person (or other persons) for that person’s own sake, for the good of the other.  This sometimes can be difficult because it requires effort and persistence on your part.  It is not doing something so that you get something in return, but done for the other person’s sake.
