Is "Love" really worth pursuing these days? Even with how biased the judicial system is with certain parties on matters of separation or allegations of abuse? Because every day I see injustice on it and it is super discouraging.

Love should always be sought after. Regardless of how cruel others may have been in the past, love permeates more than just relationships between two people who meet and want to be together. Love is the binding force of family, and the closest of friends. If you choose to ignore love, or misinterpret love for something else, you are losing sight of what love is, and why it is important to work for. And yes, it requires work, but you will always know who is worthy of this effort when you are at your lowest place in life.
Love and empathy are things this world could use way more of.
It really depends on who you are. Love seems to be natural for most people, and seeking a loving relationship the instinctive state of being. Which is all well and good for them! It helps ensure the propagation of our species, and generally helps those people in those relationships maintain their mental stability with one another. Be that as it may...
I am not one of those people. I do not seek a loving relationship any longer. I've run that course a bunch of times and always did it end poorly for everyone involved. Thus I no longer seek out such a relationship, for my own sake and the sake of others. I full well accept I shall spend my time on Earth alone, and have grown accustomed to that fact. So it is by no means a requirement to pursue it. Though if one can and find peace, love and acceptance in such a relationship I would say it is probably best for your own well being to at least try.
Though one thing I would do away with entirely is the concept of marriage. Legally binding yourself to another so tightly seems wholly unnecessary in my opinion. Especially with how skewedly the law tends to treat husbands compared to wives in divorce proceedings in the west.
It's sad that there is so much injustice and that people end up in abusive relationships, or that they simply have to end at some point, but I think it's a part of life.
Whatever it is you want to talk about, there's always going to be two sides to the coin, you know? There's tons of amazing and beautiful stories, and there's also a lot of bad ones.
I think that when you love someone enough to think "Hey, I'd like to share the rest of my life with you", it's also one of the biggest decisions you'll ever make in your life. I have to admit, it feels like a lot of people simply go into their relationships without giving it much thought, which creates more situations where they realize their partner is actually abusive, violent, have a temper, etc.
And then, if you want to talk about injustice, well.. It's sad, but whatever we do, we're human. It's in our nature to judge, to stick to our own opinions, make an idea of people based on what we observe, etc. An easy example I could take is cases of abuse, there are so, so many people whose lives are hell, they're stuck in an abusive relationship, and the organizations that could help them just don't do their job. When my parents got divorced, it was clear that everybody was on my mom's side from the start as soon as we entered the mediator's room. People who are supposed to be professional and neutral still have their ideas and values, and they may try as hard as they want, they'll always be on someone's side.
It's sad, but because we're human, nobody's perfect on this Earth, which means nothing we create is perfect either. Whatever sense of justice we have, whatever kind of system we try to put in place, it'll always have its flaws, and injustice is always going to be present. It really sucks, and I really wish there was a way to help the people who are stuck in horrible situations like these, but unfortunately, that's how it goes, apparently.
