I think, by defining conditional love precisely in this way, we are moving away from the actual usage of that term. 

> By contrast, loving someone conditionally means that you will love them on condition that they acquire some additional qualities.

One particular contra-example I can think of is, conditional love based on the income of someone. I think leaving a spouse or friend once he loses a job, and is no longer capable of making the same amount of money, is generally accepted as conditional love. But it doesn't fit the description above. Bob, in this case, was already rich, but he loses that "condition" when he loses his job.
