Is love a conscious decision, subconscious feeling, neither, or both?

I believe that love is both a state and an emotion. Love as a state is subconscious - I am in love with my husband and it is quite constant. Love as an emotion fluctuates - for example sometimes my love for my husband spikes because he does something I appreciate but there is always a steady state there. Similar to how people can be happy and there are spikes of jubilance but generally are happy and it fluctuates between spikes and the steady state.

I submitted a resume for a job and have interviewed with HR and it has been the resume has since been forwarded (via invite) to the next round of interviewers. There is a glaring error in the resume I want to correct. Is it OK to ask the recruiter to replace the resume and simply state it's been updated mid-stream and I want it replaced? Thoughts or advice appreciated.
