Kurt Cobain & Courtney Love
Tom Cruise & Nichole Kiddman
Linsey Lohan & Reality

This is a small list of break up's and suffering there are many more.Love what's it all about?It can be can be blind, and for a very small percentage love can be forever.

When you are in love it is the most wonderful time of your life.The problem is it just doesn;t seem to last anymore.I am quite happy right now, but remembering past relationships and watching my friend's.Anymore I can't help wondering when the next shoe will drop.Unfortunately love the vast majority of the time end's badly.

So on another thread I posted this song.I have played it every year for about 30 year's on Feb 14.Most people who hear it seem to agree it capture's the reality of love.

Won't celebrate it and hubby is probably very grateful.

It's a commercial enterprise, just like mother's day, father's day et al. I'm a church-goer, but I even hate the way Christmas and Easter have been commercialised.

Just to show how non-religious my church is, I didn't even know that Tuesday was pancake day!

Dude... you're being very un-dude-like.

It is better to have loved and lost, then never to have loved at all. No truer words ever spoken.

I heard that love is grand, but divorce is fifty grand.

I have worked all my married life(14years) and paid every mortgage payment and all the bills. And my wife will take half when we divorce and sell even though she has never worked...... So yes i agree to your second bit!. But it will be worth the payment. As for valentines day...............
maybe one day

People need to stop comparing their love to that of famous people/celebrities..
Love is not a movie, and from the long, long term relationships I've seen, it seems that this expectation of ideal happiness is what brings people down. Accept yourself. Accept your partner. Accept that life will suck sometimes, and if you make it through with your loved one, then accept the fact that sometimes being content is all you need. Not this idea of fireworks and excitement and drama all the time like they portray in the movies.
